The Research Center has a team of 8 people who offer a number of services to support the research and all its affiliated, fellow and temporary members.

  • A contact person on scientific integrity, which is now one of the essential requirements for quality research and contributes to the establishment of shared ethical principles at UCLy.

  • Administrative and financial monitoring of the projects and the RU
  • Logistical support with organising scientific events
  • The development of a scientific and technical information service providing researchers with support around open science, promoting publications and data and access to scientific information
  • Communication channels, both internal (newsletter, information sharing group) and external (university website, blog and social media) to promote research
