In order to plan and realize your project successfully it is essential that the infrastructure of the executing institution as well as its resources be at the disposal of the project. Generally, the following resources are at the disposal of the project:
Financial resources (see 'Fundraising')
Infrastructure and expendable items
It is useful to establish clear rules regarding the use of the infrastructural facilities and other resources. These resources are either freely at the disposal of the project - in the sense that they are regarded as invested funds - or else there is an expectation that the use of the infrastructure and facilities must be partially or fully refunded by the project or by external means. This point must be taken into consideration when establishing the budget for the project. The costs for using the institution's infrastructure and other resources can be entered in the budget as a lump sum or they can be itemized.
You and your team will save your energy by having the institution's infrastructure at your disposal and by being given sufficient work and storage space. Thanks to your colleagues' know-how and experience, you can learn how to make your project more effective.
