Research at Silesian University of Technology is financed from the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, national and international grants under research programs. SUT is one of the most effective universities in terms of acquiring funding from international sources, as well as industry.
Key personnel of SUT includes experienced and qualified researchers, early stage research staff, promising and eager for knowledge, as well as specialists in administration, responsible for the coordination and management of the project.
We have specialized and competent units dedicated to project execution within the Project Management Centre: The Office for International Projects and The Office for Financial Service of Projects. Both offices handle the administrative coordination of projects and ensure smooth and flawless implementation. SUT has also introduced dedicated courses for project coordinators, enabling them to gain knowledge about available funding schemes and rules of participation, as well as external and internal procedures for project implementation.
With constantly growing infrastructure and staff aiming at being an active creator of European Research Area, SUT is setting its goals at intensifying international cooperation by participating in Horizon 2020 and other research programs.
