A considerable part of IIT’s research activity is financed by competitive funding: since 2009 the Foundation has been awarded more than 270 grants from European, national and international institutions (30 of which were obtained only in 2016) totaling more than 100 million euros.
IIT currently manages more than 100 competitive projects, divided into three different areas: Life, Robotics and Smart + Nano.

The Projects Office supports research groups in finding external resources for the development of collaborations with other public and private institutions, assisting them during the whole project life cycle.
Specifically, the Projects Office supports researchers in:
- The preparation of proposals (e.g. finding the matching call; providing administrative, financial and technical support; liaising with the funding bodies);
- The monitoring of the evaluation process;
- The grant negotiation/award with the funding body (e.g. providing administrative, financial and technical support whenever possible)
- The management of the project, so that it can be fully implemented.
