Project Description

The main goal of the project is to establish R&D Services Centres and to develop R&D strategies, services and instruments at four SEE universities. The first activity comprises an analytical assessment of the current situation and the development state of R&D strategies at the universities. Building on the assessment results, a clear strategy that addresses the particular needs of each university should be formulated. These project steps are followed by the setting up of a R&D Service Centre and identification of its services and instruments. The elaborated measures aim at addressing all university relevant needs and problems in regard to R&D by commencing a change process on one side and creating further R&D capacities on the other side, in order to enable the universities to fulfil their central role in the national R&D systems and thus in the local, regional and national development of their countries.
