Research and Innovation Services

A joint network of Integrated Research and Innovation Services, through which common lines will be established for the future development of the alliance in the field of research and towards future support for the application to EU funding.

Through the regular interaction of the Grants Offices, Technology Transfer Offices, HR and Open Science Offices of each partner university, a set of services have been identified to promote international collaboration opportunities. This constitutes the first seed of institutional transformation in the management of the alliance as it will also include the training of professional profiles to promote Unite! services and the design of R&I services.
