Research Funding Office

The Research Funding Office provides information and advice on all matters relating to the application, acquisition and implementation of scientific projects at the national and international level. In doing so, we ensure that the requirements of the funding agencies are correctly taken into account and that the University of Liechtenstein can optimally use its potential in the acquisition of public funds. Our range of services is continuously being expanded and enhanced. The following services are currently offered:

  • Information and advice to researchers along the entire life cycle of projects.
  • Reviewing applications and contracts and obtaining signatures
  • Ensuring compliance with funding rules
  • Project controlling
  • Provision of guidelines, tools and templates for the various types of projects and their management (employees of the University of Liechtenstein can find corresponding guidelines, templates and best practices at my.uni.li - research-services (login required)).

The Research Fund of the University of Liechtenstein supports research projects of scientists at the University of Liechtenstein that are thematically anchored in the core topics of the University. Researchers from the five institutes are eligible to apply. In addition to funds for independent research projects, researchers can apply for funds to support the application phase at public research funding institutions, as well as to reduce the funding gap for publicly funded projects. Doctoral students have the opportunity to apply for funds for an independent research project within the Young Talents Programme.

In addition, there is the possibility of acquiring publicly funded third-party funding. The Research Funding Office actively supports researchers in the planning, acquisition, and processing of such funding. Researchers at the University of Liechtenstein can apply for public funding from the following institutions:

  • ERASMUS+
  • Innosuisse
  • Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF)
  • Austrian Science Fund (FWF)
  • International Lake Constance University (IBH)
  • EEA grants
