ICA - International Consulting Alliance


    • Widen your scope by interacting with partners from different geographic areas and diverse background (universities, institutes, public and semi-public bodies, consulting companies, NGOs...).
    • Increase your chances of success thanks to the networking capacity and field experience always best acquired on a local level (local ICA "antennas")
    • Enrich your services portfolio: provide studies, evaluations, trainings, consulting services - building on the know-how of other ICA Members
    • Enlarge your clients' base: work with new funding agencies, governments or private funds thanks to the assistance of other partner organizations with relevant experience
  • All members benefit from a secured access to ICA's knowledge sharing platform - a web-based application reachable from anywhere, containing:

    • A constantly growing Database of Experts (currently more than 25.000 CVs)
    • A Project Management Tool facilitating your staff to efficiently respond to new opportunities and manage projects from A to Z.
    • An efficient reference database and extraction/formatting tool following the requirements of major donors
    • Special IT tools that allow you to create stronger links with your best experts (e.g. "My Experts' Circle")
    • A common ICA Library with a lot of templates either donor-specific (formats required by EU, WB, etc.) or based on lessons learned (contracts with experts, pre-bids, consortium agreements, budgets)
    • Participate in thematic Webinars organized by ICA or its specialized members on a series of topics
    • Join an international stable network with trusted partners that share the same ethics and have created together a standardized way of working.
    • Enjoy a privileged position in the network regarding the sector or country of your expertise, as all ICA members enjoy a veto power vis-à-vis potential competitors that would like to join at a later stage
    • Benefit from mutual recommendations about contacts other ICA members worked with or receive Business Development support directly from ICA
    • Be part  in thematic communities of practice (ICA Hubs) bringing together top organizations and top experts working in the same sector (e.g. Education, Environment, Health, Energy, Social, etc.)
    • Attend the ICA Annual Conference, co-hosted every year in the city of one of our members, exchange opinions during specialized workshops on development cooperation and meet hundreds of other professionals via intensive bilateral networking between partner organizations
