Research Project Management

This is project management tailored specifically to the research context. Designed for PIs and containing content specifically for researchers and innovators, this Research Project Management course explores how to effectively apply project management principles to research projects based in universities and research organisations.

This online course will be delivered alongside online workshops. Both the course and the associated workshops are designed and delivered by MY Consultants for the Future Leaders Fellows Development Network.

Project Management course

This Research Project Management course from Robin Henderson of MY Consultants introduces essential skills for managing a research project and includes videos, resources and worksheets to help you apply your learning to either a project you are currently undertaking or a new project you are about to undertake.

The course follows a self-guided approach so you can work at your own pace as you explore its sections on:

  • project definition
  • project planning
  • project implementation
  • project close out.
