*Managing Projects in Science and Research
04-05 February 2020
Time: 9:00am - 5:00pm
Registration: bis 21. Januar 2020
Projects in science, research and teaching are characterized by deliverables like outcomes, results, new findings or concepts, which should be presented and explained to the public. Being in an economic competition about funding and third-party resources, managing, controlling and marketing of scientific projects becomes crucial for the success of projects and involved partners. Being responsible not only for one but for multiple projects doubles the challenges in project management and communication.
Project managers in academia do often not have the leading authority but are in charge of the project management. This requires a collaborative communication between involved team members and project partners. The aim of this workshop is to give an overview about the requirements and methods in the management of scientific projects. Based on practical exercises, participants will get knowledge and insight how to structure, plan and control their projects and which competencies as a project manager are required. Hands-on methods for establishing a good project communication and basic knowledge about team leadership will be provided.
