Project management for Successful Postdocs

By Dr Carine Galli Marxer

Conducting research is an integral part of our everyday lives. However, most of us didn’t get straightforward, practical information to some of the more crucial knowledge and skills needed when setting out to do a research project. Because such knowledge is essential for a successful career not only in the academia but also in the public/private sector, project management (PM) training is becoming increasingly important among scientists around the world.
