Presentation of the Research and Grants Office

Mosaique_SR_2022_EN.png The research department is an efficient, multidisciplinary service that contributes to the promotion of research excellence. Its mission is divided into 4 focus areas:
  • Ensure a systematic strategic monitoring of research and innovation policies directly linked to the stakeholders active in these areas at the regional, national and international level;
  • Translate research and innovation policies into concrete and pro-active support measures and services for the whole research community (from the post-doctoral level onwards) of UNIGE and the Geneva innovation ecosystem, in particular Geneva-based SMEs;
  • Coordinate major research programs at the regional, national, European and international levels;
  • Propose to the Rectorate elements for the development of the UNIGE research strategy.
The dynamism of the research and grants office stems from the commitment and multidisciplinary expertise of a team of 18  people active within regional and national research support center PoLN, Euresearch, and the research evaluation team of the UNIGE quality office.  The staff of the Research Service are at your disposal for any information and advice.

The constant improvement of quality is fully in line with the values of the Research Department.
