Support at Lund University
Research Services offer researchers and research teams support and help on issues concerning external research funding. Research Services have special responsibility for the following funders and programmes: Swedish funding bodies with special requirements for central management, the EU framework programme Horizon 2020, and American federal funding bodies.
Research Services has compiled a “Funding paths for Excellence” guide of funding opportunities oriented towards basic research available in different career stages with an indicative list of expected merits and skills. The guide may be used in the strategic planning of researchers, supervisors, head of departments, team leaders and the like.
The Legal Division provides help with agreements. Not all agreements require legal review. It is therefore optional to contact the Legal Division for support, which can be accessed if you need it.
