  • CEO
    Raphael de Vivans

    Raphael de Vivans CEO


    After 10 years in the private sector as SME manager, Raphael de Vivans decided to join the European Commission as an external auditor for the DG RTD.
    For 3 years, he has been in charge of on-the-spot controls of beneficiaries to ensure that their accounting and recording systems comply with the financial requirements of the RTD contract. His role was to verify that costs charged by contractors comply with the RTD contract. He was in charge of the evaluation of audit findings and was responsible for proposing changes as necessary in systems, procedures and financial aspects of the RTD contract.
    He audited public and private companies, Universities, Small and Medium size Enterprises, and non-profit organizations all over Europe.
    During these 3 years, he realised that many beneficiaries have difficulties with the rules of the European contracts. Many of them are looking for support when they have to face administrative & financial issues in the management of their projects and to face an audit carried out by the European Commission services.
