- Proposing external sponsors/ philanthropic institutions for R&D funding.
- Coordinating and managing awarded R&D projects providing on-going administrative, technical and scientific support (including follow-up tasks and reporting).
- Monitoring and verifying that the various scientific projects underway are consistent with – and complementary to – VHIO´s research lines.
