The Grants Office provides administrative support for IFOM research activities and acts as a liaison between its researchers and sponsoring agencies.

It is a central source of information on major national and international agencies, foundations, and institutions that support research and scholarship, and assists researchers in identifying appropriate research funding opportunities.

It provides assistance to researchers in the preparation of applications, developing proposal narratives and budgets, completing the application forms and interpreting the regulations of the granting agencies, assuring compliance with the sponsors policies and requirements.

It negotiates the terms and conditions of awards of successful proposals and provides support for the administration of research grants, including funding allocation, monitoring research expenditures and producing financial statements.

It manages research contracts, preparing, whenever necessary, subcontracts or consortium agreements with collaborating institutions, and acts as administrative contact point on multicentric research projects.

It collaborates with the IFOM Budget Control Unit for year-end accounts and financial forecasting of research income data.
