Raising external funds costs time and money, and ties up personnel. EU subsidies also have their own rules of the game. As scientists, you often first have to familiarise yourself with the diverse EU programmes. The EU Office of the University of Göttingen will assist you.
In addition, we support you throughout the entire project cycle: e.g. with the classification of your project idea in the appropriate funding format, with the preparation of the schedule and budget calculation as well as with the settlement of project costs including the preparation of audits. Our services also include workshops and advice on legal and strategic issues.
We are able to guarantee our expertise through a constant exchange with national and international consulting institutions. For example, the EU Office participated in the EU Mentoring Programme of KoWi and BAK and in doing so we supported the further training of junior EU research support officers. We were also a partner in the EU project ACCOMPLISSH. ACCOMPLISSH aimed to increase the visibility of the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) and the impact of its research results.
It is therefore worthwhile for all disciplines to seek EU funding. We will work with you to tackle the challenges that the application process and project management bring, especially with ever larger networks.
