The company was established by its current management team, Ciarán Clissmann and Michelle Dempsey, following ten years of EU project experience in Ireland and two years working in Brussels for the Commission. Some 75% of current company activity is in EU proposals and project management, business consultancy, project monitoring and evaluation, with the remainder in national and charity-funded projects and in research consultancy. The company employs seven people.
Pintail focuses on securing and managing projects funded by competitive public programmes, most notably the EU Horizon 2020 programme but also all other EU programmes, national agencies (e.g. SFI, Innovate UK, NIH), and charities (CRUK, Wellcome Trust) . The company has established an excellent reputation for close, effective collaboration with research principals and has an exceptional track record in securing research funding and supporting researchers in the management and delivery of funded projects.
