Projects in science, research and teaching are characterized by deliverables like outcomes, results, new findings or concepts, which should be presented and explained to the public. In an economic competition about funding and third-party resources, managing and controlling and of scientific projects becomes crucial for project success and involved partners.
Project managers in academia often do not have the leading authority but are in charge of the project management. This requires a clear picture about the role of project leadership and related responsibilities. One of the major tasks is to establish a collaborative communication between involved team members and project partners. Responsibilities not only for one but for multiple projects doubles the challenges in project management and communication.
The aim of this workshop is to give an overview about requirements and methods in the management of scientific projects. Based on practical online-exercises, participants will get knowledge and insight how to structure, plan and control their projects. Hands-on methods for establishing a sustainable project communication will be provided.
