If you are planning a major project proposal for external research funding, please contact the Research Support Office for any of the following matters:

Analysing a call text

We can help you with an analysis of 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.

Feedback on how your proposal meets the criteria and requirements of a specific research funding agency

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

Specific issues and requirements related to applications

We offer support on how to address specific issues or requirements that the funding agency has stated as vital to the project proposal, e.g. research ethics, gender, sustainability development goals, open access or export control.

Book a meeting with a research advisor

You are always welcome to contact us for questions about research funding applications and to book a meeting with one of our research advisors . Remember, the sooner before the deadline of the call you contact us, the better support we can provide for a successful proposal.

If you have questions relating to budgets, please contact the financial officer at your school/institution.
