Support for Research

The establishment and development of research projects comes with many challenges: when a good idea emerges - where is the appropriate financing? A project gets approval - who can sign contracts and how is the project identified? The project is over - what now? BOKU’s service units help researchers answer these and many other questions regarding the acquisition and processing of third-party funded research projects.
