Analysing a call text

RSO can help you to analyse a call text and background information to find out the intention and expectations of the call.

Providing structure to a proposal

We can help you formulate your proposal in a structured way that meets the criteria of the funding agencies and the evaluators.

Criteria and requirements of research funding agencies

We offer support in reading your draft proposal and providing feedback on how well it meets the criteria and requirements specified by a particular external funding agency.

We offer support on addressing specific issues or requirements that the funding agency has stated as vital to the project proposal, for example research ethics, gender aspects, the sustainable development goals, open access or export control.
