UCA Europe Research Office

In response to the very diverse and highly technical calls for projects launched by European and national funding institutions (European Commission, French National Research Agency, regional councils, Fondation de France, etc.), Université Côte d'Azur has created a single office, the Europe Research Office, whose mission is to assist the members of the research community and their projects. The Europe Research Office, serving all UCA members, relies on three commitments:

  • Better inform the research community about national and European funding opportunities
  • Propose effective and tailor-made assistance meant to support researchers in the application and submission process
  • Train researchers in the principles of application development and submission in order to maximize their chances of success

In order to respect these commitments, the Europe Research Office deploys several complementary actions:

  • Animation and Information. The Europe Research Office is committed to raising awareness, mobilizing and assisting the UCA research community by organizing a series of events (Infodays or Europe Research Office – Field service) and by developing a set of tools such as the UCA search engine, the financial instruments dictionary, or the project development Guide that provides explanations on how to build a successful application. These tools are specifically designed to meet the needs of the research community while taking into account the specific context of the ecosystem Université Côte d'Azur.
  •  Assistance in the development and submission of European and national projects. Some members of Université Côte d'Azur (UNS, CNRS, OCA) expressed their wish to position the Europe Research Office as a single office for project leaders for the entire research community. Thus, all the incoming requests will be sent via an online form filled out by the project leader (shortly available) and will be treated by the Europe Research Office. The project will benefit from tailor-made assistance according to its needs and its supervisory management.
  • Training. Each year, the Europe Research Office deploys training courses on project development and management



The UCA Europe Office has been of great help to us in finalizing our Marie Curie H2020 funding application. Professionalism, efficiency and wonderful availability are the key words that best characterize their intervention and I’d like to thank especially the remarkable work done by the project engineer.

- Dr. A. DOGLIO, Director of MICORALIS laboratory

The Europe Office provided me with excellent, efficient and professional support in writing a Marie Curie research proposal in a very tight timeframe. I am impressed by the project enginner's knowledge (English language and general), diligence, responsiveness and compassion. I am sincerely grateful!

- Dr. L. TONOYAN, researcher in microbiology

I strongly advise anyone willing to submit EU projects to refer to UCA project office. They helped me by proofreading the whole proposal, by drafting the non scientific sections which are as important as the core research and by taking care of all the administrative papers. Thank you for the valuable help!
