Train the trainer – How to support researchers in grant acquisition, project management and exploitation

Research management support has become an important function in its own right, but there is little formal training that can prepare people for this important service function. The purpose of this workshop is to share experience. It will examine the role of the research support manager, how to perform this role effectively, juggle the many demands and look at the possibilities for personal development and advancement.

Target group:

People whose job it is to advise researchers on how to get grants.
