Research support services
The Research Support Services unit serves the staff of Aalto, providing services related to obtaining and managing externally funded research projects.
The unit is in charge of:
- grant scouting - identifying funding opportunities for research
- preparing research funding applications together with the applicant and providing guidance in applications
- providing support in project funding agreements and negotiations as well as on other administrative questions
- providing legal services related to research projects such as negotiating the research agreements, IPR counseling, etc.
The personnel of Research Support Services unit is divided into school-specific service teams, comprising research liaison officer, grant writer, grant advisor and legal counsel. IPR services to arts universities are provided together with Finnish Academy of Fine Arts, Theatre Academy and Sibelius Academy.
The project manager service was launced in 2012. The service is for EU FP7 projects coordinated by Aalto. The project manager acts as an administrative coordinator working together with the scientific coordinator. In this way, the researchers can focus on research, while the project is managed professionally.
