Management of collaborative research projects

Managing a Horizon Europe or any international collaborative research project is not easy. These types of projects, often multidisciplinary, incorporating partners with diverse objectives and working cultures;involving a high level of risk and expectation, designed to serve a political agenda as well as generate knowledge and innovation, pose many challenges not addressed by conventional project management. When run well, such projects can form powerful communities of practitioners that can achieve great things, but they stand or fall on the ability of the project manager to hold the activities together.
This classic workshop has been delivered in various forms for well over a decade, but remains extremely popular as a hands-on introduction to the art of managing multi-disciplinary, multi-organisational research projects. The Framework Programme is used as a model, but the approach is applicable to multi-partner projects. It is targeted at researchers and management support staff who may find themselves in a management role, but also those who perhaps just need to know about what management involves. This workshop is also suitable as a complementary skills course in project management for young researchers.
The workshop will follow the form of lectures followed by group exercises with discussion feedback. It is very practical and interactive in nature, giving participants skills that they themselves can apply.
The workshop is designed for Researchers and support staff with little previous experience of project management. Can be delivered in a form tailored to PhD students as part of a complementary skills programme.
