The main objective of the UB International Research Projects Office (OPIR) is the management of research projects financed by the European Commission and other international organizations. This includes the dissemination of information, the support for the preparation of proposals (forms and budget) and the economic management (payments, budget control, preparation of financial reports, etc.). The OPIR has two sections: the Promotion Section (Pre-award), which is in charge of supporting the preparation of proposals, and the Financial Management Section (Post-award), in charge of the financial management of most of the typologies of projects granted.
