Welcome to the Project Development Office
The Project Development Office (PDO) provides Edinburgh Napier University's Institutes with advice and support to maximise the funding opportunities available via the European Union (EU).
Our aim is to assist academic staff to source and secure EU funds for activities that enable the University to advance strategic priorities, develop new product and service offerings and enter new markets.
Projects supported by the PDO fall into five broad categories:
- Educational Development & Lifelong Learning
- Business Development & Creation
- Academic Enterprise & Innovation
- Social Development & Community
A key component of the PDO's future activities will be a focus on preparing the University for Horizon 2020; the EU's new 80 billion (Euro) programme for research and innovation, launching in 2014.
