Project Management

Within the Project Management team of the Research Support Office (RSO), we support in the project management of large research projects. Depending on the specifics of the project and the resources available, the services provided might differ. 

The Project Management team of the Research Support Office (RSO) supports large research projects. Services are tailored to the project needs and the resources available. 

For these projects, we can act as operational manager, together with the Principal Investigator (PI), and as such (examples):

  • Collaborate on a daily basis with the Principle Investigator (PI) of the project, who is responsible for the scientific content of the project.
  • Maintain contact with the EU Project Officer (PO) regarding the progress of the project.
  • Ensure adequate and timely reporting of the project‘s progress.
  • Interact with other (research) support staff in the field of legal, grants, finance, HR, ethics and Business Development
  • Perform day to day management, e.g., organize consortium meetings, communicate with partners, and alleviate the workload of the PI

Do you have a funded research project for which you need a Project Manager? Or are you in the process of submitting a proposal, for which a Project Manager is needed? Please, contact us at Research Support to discuss the options. Currently, the central project management capacity at RSO is limited, but extensions could be considered.

The RSO Project Management Team supports several projects within the H2020 framework, such as Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (MSCA ITN) projects, joint research training and doctoral programmes, implemented by partnerships of universities and industrial research partners from different countries.

Also several MSCA COFUND programs are supported, being EuroTechPostdoc and EuroTechPostdoc2 (ETPD2). Within ETPD2, the universities of the EuroTech Universities Alliance offer seventy Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellowships to experienced high-potential researchers. As coordinator of ETPD2, the RSO PM team is acting as liaison for the Project Officer in Brussels, is responsible for the call management (e.g. call for proposals, evaluation process, etc.) and for the training programme offered (local and program-wide trainings).
