The Faculty´s Grant Committee

  • Discusses significant changes in SGS projects in progress in relation to the stakeholder, funding (changes amounting to over 20 % of the approved budget) or schedule which might affect further progress or results of the project concerned. The changes are subsequently approved by the Vice-Dean for Science and Research. In case any shortcomings are discovered when the progress or use of project funds is checked, the Grant Committee members, Vice-Dean for Science and Research or Vice-Rector for Science and Research may propose early termination of the project.
  • Assesses the final reports from such SGS projects which have not been evaluated by the Vice-Dean for Science and Research as clearly “achieved and completed”.
  • According to item 3.V. of the Rector´s Decree no. 6/2015, the Committee compiles the sequence order of the project applications submitted to the AMU Project Competition, including recommendation/non-recommendation for funding of the full budget, or with budget cuts.  The AMU Grant Committee votes  on the acceptance, refusal or acceptance with budget cuts of all projects, taking into consideration the Faculty´s recommendations – the Grant Committee votes even on projects which were not recommended for funding by the relevant faculty.
