Network Management

Building Strategic Alliances

Successful networks and strategic alliances do not fall from the sky – they usually have to be initiated, maintained and expanded strategically step by step. Networks are mostly very heterogeneous systems, consisting of a number of partners whose information, communication, cooperation and activities have to be well organised. This requires a highly qualified and diverse team ensuring the efficient handling of the numerous tasks and functions. Strategic alliance management combined with professional project management activities simplify and structure the network and enable it to achieve operational goals quickly and in accordance with the given resources.

Eurice offers lean and professional management and communication activities by integrating its internal and external scope of activities. Doing so, we ensure transparency, reliability and accountability for network members on the one hand while creating a corporate identity and increased visibility of the network on the other hand.
