The Project and Grant Service Unit supports institutional project processes and grant applications. The unit’s members cover broad expertise from scientific, management, and legal background to serve Swiss TPH and its partners throughout the project life cycle and across departments.
Project Development in Partner Alliances
Promoting research, teaching, and service projects in interdisciplinary partnership, the unit is streamlining collaborative project development with partner organisations in the South and North in a sustainable manner.
We provide a quality assured and maintained project database for internal portfolio and external reporting purposes and contributes to regular updates and implementation of the Swiss TPH strategy. In addition, the unit ensures technical supervision of PhD projects through a guided PhD proposal review process (Research Commission).
We support Swiss TPH scientists in seeking new third-party funds and aims at improving competitive project grant applications.
We offer organisational and legal guidance for project contracting and intellectual property issues, in collaboration with the University of Basel technology transfer organization Unitectra.
Temporary, the unit establishes travel safety regulations according to international standards to support staff travelling to, and working in, fragile context countries.
