Project Management Services

Planning to apply for research funding? Thinking about coordinating international and national projects? Worried about bureaucracy and red tape?

The University of Eastern Finland (UEF) offers professional project management services for the implementation phase of large international and national projects. The aim of the service is to relieve the administrative burden of the coordinators and to ease the management of the projects. The service may also be a part of the risk management of the organisations.

Projects that use the UEF project management services:

  • INEXCA, Principal Investigator Professor Katri Vehviläinen-Julkunen, Deparment of Nursing Science, (Horizon 2020 / RISE programme)
  • OcuTher, Principal Investigator Professor Arto Urtti, Department of Pharmacy (Horizon 2020 / ITN programme)
