Project Management for Scientists

Course type: Workshop
Target group: Doctoral students
Many scientific projects suffer from an insufficient planning, unclear goal definitions and consequently a bad time management. This leads to project delays, inefficient use of resources and often to frustration.
This workshop will support young researchers in the acquisition of the necessary skills for an effective management of their research project. It is based on the classical project management tools which are adapted to the need of exploratory science. In extensive hands-on exercises participants will define goals and milestones for their individual project, outline project definitions and work structures and practice to organise their working time by setting priorities, planning their workload, delegating tasks and motivating themselves.
