This is provided via information education, advice, management and other forms of expert support to researchers and research groups at KTH.

We have close relationships with KTH's most important research financiers

We monitor the funders' research agendas and funding requirements and other important new issues that are prioritized by the financiers. We represent KTH in the financiers' various networks and reference groups.

We provide support for competitive research applications

We have expertise that is crucial for successful research applications and support for how researchers can address relevant issues such as ethics, gender issues, global sustainability goals, impact, data management plans, open data, IP / IP rights, project management, etc.

We provide support for export control and ethical issues in research projects

Working closely with the Civil law and Contracts unit, we have expertise on export control and provide support to researchers with the review, classification and authorisation of technology that are regulated by export control legislation. We provide support to KTH researchers, schools and management on research ethics issues with a focus on research funding requirements.

We provide support for project management, administration and reporting

We have specialist knowledge in project management, administration, budgeting and reporting of EU projects and support the schools' administrative staff and project managers with competence development, templates and support structures.

EU funding

KTH is an active participant in projects funded by the EU's various programmes for research and innovation, and EU funding thus constitutes a rather large part of KTH's external research funding.

Cross-cutting issues
