About the Course

The Research Project Management course provides an introduction and in depth insight on the principles of managing scientific projects by improving project management skills of participants. Participants will learn how to apply project management principles to typical types of research projects in academia: collaborative third-party funded research projects, individual doctoral or post-doctoral research projects, or publication management. Knowledge gained in this course can be applied and adapted to a researcher’s everyday work.

The format of this virtual course is interactive, experience-based rather than receiving longer presentations on general project management principles. As an outcome, this course can help participants to organise their work more effectively and with less stress. This workshop is recommended to those who want to become successful leaders or members of research projects.
