Project Management for Scientists


The successful management of research projects is key to success in science. Understanding what project management is, when it is helpful and how to apply it in research is an important skill for scientists. This course, developed by CJ Fitzsimons - author of "International Project Management - intercultural cooperation in practice" - introduces key concepts in project management, both for planning and managing work, and for working effectively with people (including with yourself). 

The course is delivered by EMBO trainers.
