This is a very successful and effective programme, and highly recommended by previous attendees.
This cross institutional development event provides a fantastic opportunity for networking with research colleagues.
The programme is aimed at early career research staff (whether having a doctorate, experience, or other qualifications) within the first 3–15 months of a research contract with project management responsibility. The programme has been designed to integrate self-awareness and learning across a number of key areas, which include:
* project management – for the researcher’s own projects, and in assisting others with their projects, and including the creativity of developing new projects
* people management – managing others (students, technicians, etc) and being managed (PIs, department heads, etc)
* prioritisation of competing tasks and managing complex, diverse workloads
* orientation within a longer-term career.
