Management of Collaborative Research Projects
8 February, room 4a, building 1b, Bahrenfeld campus
This workshop provides a hands-on introduction to the art of managing multi-disciplinary, multi-organisational research projects. The Framework Programme is used as a model, but the approach is applicable to multi-partner projects. It is targeted at researchers and management support staff who may find themselves in a management role, but also those who perhaps just need to know about what management involves. This workshop is also suitable as a complementary skills course in project management for young researchers. The workshop will follow the form of lectures followed by group exercises with discussion feedback. It aims to be very practical and interactive in nature, giving students skills and understanding that they themselves can apply rather than theory on project management. The lectures will be given in English. Groups may discuss in German if preferred.
The workshop will be given by Monica Schofield. Monica Schofield has almost thirty years’ experience of innovation management in industry large and small in Sweden, UK and Germany.
