Our Work

We know that our success depends on the quality of our services, our creativity, and our commitment. We bring ideas, intelligence, and integrity to every client assignment, and based on the needs of our clients we can provide both bespoke products and long-lasting services.

  • We offer a unique combination of technical expertise and coalition-building experience to transform innovative ideas into structured RD&I project proposals that can be granted with European and public funds.
  • We support our clients with tailor-made events and communications strategies in order to foster constructive discussion around complex topics.

Our History

Drawing from three decades of expertise, in 1991, our Founding Partner Marc Clerens established Clerens Consulting and served as its Managing Director for 13 years until his retirement in 2004.

Since 2003, Patrick Clerens has lead the Brussels-based team. Our office has evolved in tandem with the European Union, accumulating over 30 years of proficiency in lobbying, communications, and project management.

We have grown alongside our clients, rebranding as CLERENS in 2019 and expanding our team to handle a greater number of projects. We are proud to have worked with dozens of European and global companies, small and medium enterprises, industry associations, and political foundations.
