Description and objectives
After this workshop, participants will have methods and tools to successfully develop, manage and supervise research projects. They will be able to:
• Set project objectives
• Structure and plan a project
• Define roles and responsibilities in projects
• Create the project budget
• Manage risks
• Establish a communication plan
• Guide and control projects in a flexible and meaningful way.

The workshop addresses the following questions:
• What is a project and what are the main impact factors?
• What should I do to successfully complete my research projects?
• How should I structure, plan and guide my projects?
• How should I communicate with my stakeholders (prof., team members, sponsors, etc.)?

After a short introduction performed online (1h, 1.2.2021 from 9h to 10h), participants should watch videos prepared by the trainer and apply the methods to one of their research projects prior to the workshop (about 20h of work from 1.2.–24.2.). During the main online session ( February 26, 8h30–14h15 & 20’ personal feedback until 17:30), group activities will take place, the trainer will answer questions from participants and also give them a personal feedback about their work. No prior knowledge of project management is required for this very practical workshop.
