Project management

This interactive workshop will explore the practical application of project management to research projects. Working through a project lifecycle the students will explore:
• How to work with collaborators and stakeholders to define project success
• How to effectively plan projects taking into account the iterative nature of research
• How to pre-empt issues and risk manage the project
• How to assess progress and resolve issues with the project.
Throughout the workshop ESRs will discuss how the same skills that can be applied within research can be applied to future projects that participants may undertake both within and beyond academia with a variety of stakeholders including in industry, business start-up and public sector.
