Competitive Funding

Mireia Martí Barroso

Head: Mireia Martí Barroso

The ICN2 Competitive Funding Department is devoted to supporting researchers in managing competitive funds obtained from the participation in tenders and projects, in compliance with the terms and requirements of the various funding agencies throughout the life of each funded project. This includes providing comprehensive support for the preparation and submission of proposals and, upon grant acceptance, fulfilling all administrative and reporting requirements for active grants, as well as budget management.

The philosophy of the department is based on establishing a fluid dialogue with the researchers, where the assigned project manager becomes the go-to contact for all steps related to project management. This way, researchers can devote their time almost exclusively to the technical development of their project, minimising their involvement in financial control and deadlines.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the department has been obliged to adapt to a new reality based on teleworking. Such adaptation has been done successfully and the department’s essential activity has not been affected, as evidenced by the number of proposals the members of the department have dealt with and the funds obtained.
