The University of Wolverhampton Brussels Office’s principle aim is to assist senior management and academic staff in the income generation, collaborative research and to improve their access to EU funding.
Our aim is to improve staff knowledge and skills in developing quality proposals to various funders and delivering successful projects.
We work for both the internal and external relations of the organisation, with a view to strengthen the University’s researchers’ participation in the EU and secure funding for its scientific and technological projects.
Our office is a member of ERRIN (European Regions Research and Innovation Network), a network of regional offices with a research capacity in Brussels. ERRIN provides partners’ search facilities, creates research thematic working groups and brokerage events in order to encourage the exchange of information, in particular those related to the Horizon 2020.
We also work with staff across the University to raise awareness of commercial income opportunities, facilitate collaboration and partnerships, support the development of quality funding proposals, assure delivery of complex projects and support staff to identify commercialisation opportunities.
Here are some of the ways we assist senior management and academic staff in the income generation, collaborative research and to improve their access to EU funding:
