The key strength of EXELIA is its interdisciplinary team of researchers, analysts, project managers, financial and communication experts.


We specialise in a small but critical segment of the research and development value chain: We turn ideas and research concepts into working research projects by scrutinising, documenting, researching, adjusting the initial idea and transforming it into a feasible, realistic and innovative set of coherent actions to be implemented by experienced complementary organisations. Main parts of our interventions are to assure the funding and the efficient administration of the research effort.

What to expect in our workplace

We try whenever possible to adapt the roles and the functions to the personalities and to engage each one by offering a path of personal interest and rewards.We are committed to review individual performance every 12-18 months and to jointly set personal growth areas and performance indicators.We have simple organisational structure flexible and evolving with individual roles explicitly defined and jointly agreed.We try hard to accommodate personal interests and to reconcile whenever possible with the team priorities.

Expect a career path where:

The first 6-12 months (depending on the experience and seniority of the collaborator) are a period of intensive learning and getting to speed. At the end of this period we reassess the fit to the positions and if necessary we make adjustment and revise the integration plan.

The first 1-3 years is a maturing period accumulating expertise and perfecting ways and approaches. Ideally, gradually the collaborator acquires more independence in the execution of her/his functions and she/he becomes responsible for an area working with more and more autonomy.

From the fourth or fifth year on, we jointly explore ways to progress either by undertaking new areas, getting upgraded responsibilities for results or motivating and steering collaborators.
