Project Management for Researchers
This course focuses on the primary tools necessary for project management and you will, upon completion of the course, immediately be able to apply these tools to your own research projects.
You will gain knowledge and become aware of the different stakeholders that play a part in managing a project and at the same time, be able to communicate effectively with these stakeholders.
The course also focuses on the project management tools that play a part in raising funds for projects and how these tools are part of the fundraising process.
This course is aimed at professors, lecturers, assistant professors, postgraduates and PhDs who wish to obtain even greater success with their research projects. Furthermore, the course is suitable for both researchers who work alone and those who work collectively as part of a greater research project or research group.
Staff that play a supporting role (TAP-personnel) on research projects will also find this course suitable. We encourage both groups to participate in the same course, as to obtain the same understanding and knowledge of project management.
The course is held over three intense days from 9.00 – 17.00. Accommodation is not included.
Participants are also strongly encouraged to contribute to activities during the course which will include theoretical and practical exercises and reviews. Theory will also be reviewed in relation to practical examples.
