Research Support Network
Tasks of supporting researchers in the development of project are not confined to a single unit,. This is distributed to several partners working together within the UNIL Research Support Network (UNIL RSN). This Network acts primarily as a project facilitator, not as a controller of researchers' activities. Questions adressed to a membr of the UNIL-RSN usually generate loops of exchanges within and outside the network the are invisible to the researcher. The answer comes back from the most appropriate unit of the network.
This organization is a functional network and not a structural entity. It has the advantage of flexibility. It brings together the best skills to answer each specific question in real time. The transversality of skills between the partners makes it possible to cover all the specific aspects of a given problem in a fast and smooth way. For example, for a foreign researcher: funding opportunities, residence permits, legal issues, housing, scools etc.
