Mr. Raphael de Vivans is the CEO and founder of European Fund Management Consulting.

Former external auditor for the DG RTD, he has been in charge of on-the-spot controls of beneficiaries to ensure that their accounting and recordingsystems comply with the financial requirements of the RTD contract. His role was to verify that costs charged by contractors comply with the RTD contract.
