The unit also provides all kinds of pre-award services that include: screening of calls under different national and international funding programs; finding the appropriate partners; proposal writing; consortium establishment; budget preparation; submission; contract negotiation and other related activities.
The unit works to provide a set of post-award services for researchers and entrepreneurs, as well as industrial leaders.

The unit team assists in preparing periodical technical and financial reports; ensuring the implementation of project activities according to time plan; preparation of supporting documents for donors; monitoring the handover of deliverables, organizing of events and dissemination of materials; and guaranteeing project sustainability (financial, institutional, policy).
