EU Office of the University of Göttingen


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.
