The Grants Office is a unit within the Vice-Chancellor’s Office. We provide expertise, support, advice and information on external funding issues to researchers, administrators and university leadership.

Our mission is to:

  • Provide a helpdesk where you can ask questions about finding funding, preparing proposals, starting up and implementing projects, or any other issues related to external funding.
  • Offer specialist support with proposal development, focusing on large collaborative grants and large individual grants, and the start-up and administration of large SLU-coordinated projects. (Where possible, also provide advice and support to those participating in large collaborative projects as partners.)
  • Develop and implement educational activities with a focus on external funding and project administration
  • Support and develop support tools and templates for project administration, budgeting, financial control and reporting
  • Actively and systematically monitor open calls and news about funding opportunities, and provide regular updates via newsletters, the staff web and department visits. In addition, proactively seek out potential SLU coordinators for future calls of strategic relevance to SLU via a matchmaking group.
  • Build and maintain good relationships with national and international (primarily EU) funders.
  • Participate in relevant networks and university collaborations for the exchange of experience, competence development, information sharing and lobbying.
  • Provide analyses and input to discussions and decisions related to external funding at SLU.
