Training Overview

During the four-day course participants work on their own research project and go through the various steps of project management. By the end of the course participants have clearly defined their project by setting goals, objectives, and measurable indicators, have developed a complete and realistic implementation plan and have defined an effective team work process. Researchers are more confident, have developed a more profound sense of responsibility and accountability and have increased their awareness of the value and challenges of working in teams.
