This department plays a central role in providing advice on  EU research matters and acquiring European research grants.My tasks involve monitoring the developments in European programs, especially Horizon 2020 ( and the future Horizon Europe) and reporting and providing advice to my colleagues, researchers and other stakeholders in the University. I am also in charge of identifying and promoting opportunities to develop research projects and organising  training on  European grants and policies.
