Welcome

Support Units

The CR Support Units (CRSU) provide all administrative, financial and operational assistance to the CR community. Accompanying the evolution and growth of the Champalimaud Research, the support provided to CR’s scientists also grows in organisation and capacities, blossoming with a new structure of seven specialised Units: Lab Administration, Human Resources, Events, Education & Courses, Operations, Sponsored Programmes and Science Communication. The CRSU team aims to provide all science administration, management and communication support to boost the work of scientists, maximising the focus on research.

This team also serves as a primary contact point for any problem-solving needs within CR, being able to advise on the resources available to the CR community. The Direction Support team is composed of the Executive Coordinator, the Operations Manager and the Financial Manager.

Human Resources & Fellows

Human Resources & Fellows

Fellows Support Office

Every person that joins CR needs to go through the Fellows Support Office (FSo). Whether it’s a PI or an Intern or simply a guest, FSo needs to be notified with as much notice as possible. They will advise on all the necessary procedures for everyone’s correct registration as a CR member: contracts, social security, medical insurance, visas, CCU cards, language classes at CCU.

Other tasks include development, implementation and maintenance of policies in the areas of recruitment, selection, fellowships regulations, assistance with the Portuguese and international legal and tax issues, relocation assistance, visa and immigration procedures and worker's wellness, safety, training and development, continuous and updated HR reporting, management, processing and support.

Our goal is to ensure that all these commitments with the fellows are met and for such we articulate with all the numerous offices and groups at Champalimaud Foundation.

Office for Sponsored Programmes: Post-award

The CF’s OSP - post-award will be able to give help and support in issues related with grant reporting (financial and scientific), grant administration and cost eligibility. The CF’s OSP - Post award also aims to function as a facilitator, creating a bridge between the CR Scientific Community and the more bureaucratic aspects of grant management. The Project Managers are responsible for the day-to-day implementation of large-scale institutional and consortia projects. They play a pivotal liaison role, acting as the center of communication for all internal and external stakeholders, monitoring project progress, identifying risks, coordinating technical reporting and ensuring effective dissemination.

Health & Science

As CF's clinical research activities expand and diversify, the output from projects developed at the Champalimaud Clinical Centre, and in particular by the Research Groups of the Clinical and Experimental Research Programme, call for increasing communication efforts. This includes the production of content and events to bridge the gap between clinical research and the public at large.

Education and Courses

Education and Courses

Education and Courses

This Unit runs mainly through the Teaching Lab and Classroom, the hubs of our PhD programme and all courses happening at CR. The team deals with the organisation and daily management of INDP classes, CAJAL courses and external teaching weeks (GABBA, IGC, MIT, etc). The organisation of the Teaching Lab space and materials is another main function of this Unit, as well as supporting the INDP recruiting process.
