Scientific Project Management- Managing Projects With Impact, Excellence, And Eficacy

24/4, 26/4, 2/5, 29/5 and 12/6

In this course we will introduce the basic concepts, techniques and procedures of Project Management. We will learn the vocabulary and general guidelines and understand the process in its entirety. The course aims to offer a very broad and general vision of the Project Management framework, and the assimilation of concepts will be achieved combining theory and practice and with Collaborative learning through the preparation of practical cases in groups, always with a hands-on approach. Every participant will work in their own project and will leave the course with some work already done with it.

Participants are expected to actively contribute to their respective projects, guaranteeing that they finish the course with tangible progress already achieved. This is not a course to sit down and take notes, you will learn by doing, learning and sharing with your colleagues.

Target: anybody with interest in knowing the basics of project management and apply them in their science projects, their career or their personal life. In this fourth edition, we will give priority to participants that are part of a technical office (KTT; HR, communication, admin), core facilities, admin roles, or other types of scientific staff. Predocs, postdocs and group leaders are also welcomed to register.
