Strategic Management disciplines will be involved. The Research Office has a consolidated expertise in
Project design and management supporting the building of industry-academia partnerships and fostering

URJC has been participating actively in international projects since Sixth Framework Programme. URJC has
established an European Projects Office (EPO) to strengthen the participation in international research
activities. EPO collaborates in two main ways: on one hand attending and handling both administrative and
financial issues from the different projects and action, and on the other hand assisting the researchers and
the project/action individually by providing support in different tasks regarding Technology Transfer, IP
management and support, Open Access, Technology Watch and so on. The EPO has a staff with a technical
and financial background, and skills to develop the above described activities. Additionally, the EPO has a
delegation located in the Office of the Madrid Region in Brussels whose primary mission is to serve as
liaison and interface, between researchers and the European institutions.

As of the date URJC has been involved in around 50 European projects, of which 10 belongs to the H2020
