Managing Successful Research Projects

Managing Research Projects
Managing Research Projects

Target Audience: Early Career Researchers

Brief Outline: Effective management of one or more research projects requires foresight, planning and appropriately timed execution but it can also be tricky and time consuming. Managing your own expectations and those of your colleagues can also be challenging and it is important to have clear aims, to frequently review your progress and discuss your work. The independent nature and freedom of research requires individuals to be responsible for their own project management, progress and results; planning and managing your research effectively can make the process less stressful, more productive and will help you to finish within your allotted time.

This workshop will cover key stages in the project management process and introduce participants to various tools and techniques that can be used to help manage your project. At the start of the workshop, participants will be asked to define their aims and objectives for their research and also their career for the next five years. They will design a timeline from the start of their project to managing and preparing for their next post. This theme will continue throughout the workshop and participants will be encouraged to apply various tools to their own individual needs, in addition to taking part in group exercises with other researchers.

The workshop will cover areas such as project management tools, strategy, time management, publishing and communicating, working effectively with your colleagues, analysing your progress, dealing with problems, iterating and designing a personal career plan.
