The support we provide in the project development and application processes of research-focused grant projects include announcing calls for applications, identifying and notifying suitable candidates, helping the project prepare an application that satisfies program requirements, obtaining additional documents as necessary, partnering with the Industry Cooperation and Technology Licensing Office (ILO) to find industry partners and involving ILO for carrying out protocol processes, completing the application prior to the deadline, managing the contract process once the project is accepted and handing the project over to the Research Project Management Office (PMO), and if the application is rejected, looking into the reasons and informing the applicant to enable them to apply again.
