Онлайн-тренінг – “Project Management for Researchers”, 14-15.10.2022 (Open for applications)

With Horizon Europe, EU takes a step in the new funding programme aiming to boost EU’s competitiveness and growth. Between 2021 and 2027, €95.5 billion will be spent on thousands of projects empowering researchers inside and outside of Academia. All forms of collaboration will be prioritized: those between individuals or their institutions, but also those with business, industry, non-profit organisations, and the public sector.

Now, more than ever, researchers’ work will be organised in projects, ranging from doctoral research, to different forms of collaborative research up to large institutional consortia. What does it mean to researchers? How can they prepare yourself and integrate their work to the new system in order to fully develop their scientific potential?

With this workshop, researchers will learn how to plan, organise and effectively run research projects, considering practical, but also necessary administrative tasks. They will acquire notions of management specific to the EU research actions and test their ideas and skills in a set of practical exercises. This course will prepare them to optimally manage challenging projects. 

Training is free of charge but the number of places is limited.

Time: 14-15.10.2022, 09:00 – 16:00 (CET) / 10:00 – 17:00 (EET)

Application deadline: Sunday, October 09, 2022. – Extended to: 15:00 (CET), 10.10.2022
