Mission Statement

Responsibilities and guiding principles of the Science Support Center (SSC)

As a central service unit at UDE, the Science Support Center (SSC) is the point of contact for research funding, early career researchers and research transfer.

Our mission is to help our University and its members develop successfully.

With our wide-ranging expertise and problem-solving competencies, we can effectively address the many different needs we encounter – from advice on research proposals and start-ups to career and skills development through to patent registration and event organisation.

We support UDE researchers at all stages of their careers as well as members interested in starting a company, and we collaborate with University management and administration. We network with external partners and cooperate with organisations at the regional, national and international level.

We value diverse expertise and experiences in our University work environment and in our team. Making this diversity visible and promoting equal opportunities at the University is of particular importance to us.
