Our staff at the Research Support Office are happy to advise you on the choice of appropriate funding bodies and on application procedures.
The team assists you with classifying project ideas, procures information on programmes, calls for tender and requirements, and supports researchers on all matters pertaining to budget and resource planning in collaboration with the finance department. The members of staff supply text modules for general subjects such as equal opportunities and institutional strategy and review application letters. Moreover, they issue the letters of approval on behalf of the Rectorate.

Here, representatives of the departments of Research and Early Career Researchers as well as Transfer and Entrepreneurship help you search for a suitable funding programme and draft application documents and answer questions on the administrative process or on exploitation planning.
