Aims

The financing of research and development is a complicated and rapidly changing area. It involves public financing which is closely related to the complex issues of research evaluation as well as a tough competition in acquiring grants and venture funds. The key question is how to get money for research and its results exploitation including transferring technology and creating spin-off enterprises. The subject will provide students with answers to questions arising around financing of research, development and innovation. They will become well oriented in different financial sources and funding opportunities and get a practical advice of how to prepare research grants applications.
