Take part in international R&D programmes

Promotion Team - Proposal Phase

The Promotion Team of the International R&D Projects Office (OPI) aims to stimulate the participation and leadership of UPM research groups in the increasingly complex international research programs, especially the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.

Since its creation in 2007 at the initiative of the Vice Rector's Office for Research, the results have been more visible: in less than 10 years, the return of the EU Framework Programmes has doubled, considerably increasing the number of projects coordinated by UPM research groups.

Remaining sensitive to the diverse nature of the research groups and being aware of the multiple funding possibilities, our team works in a bidirectional way with the UPM community. On one hand, by attending to the individual demands of each researcher, whether they are experienced or starting their research career. On the other hand, by proactively stimulating the participation of our research teams in international research programmes.

In a context in which institutional relations make a difference, we work towards visibility and positioning, being present in Technology Platforms, associations, workshops, forums or events, giving visibility to UPM and defending its interests and, consequently, the interests of our research staff too.
