The landscape of scientific research is changing. Today’s researchers need to participate in large-scale collaborations, obtain and manage funding, share data, publish, and undertake knowledge translation activities in order to be successful. As per these increasing demands, Science Management is now a vital piece of the environment. This course consists of lectures presenting practical techniques, tools, and project management skills that participants can begin to implement. The course ends with a panel discussion which hosts experts in the field whom have extensive experience with management in a science setting.
The goal of this symposium from the 2019 Canadian Association for Neuroscience Meeting is to motivate participants to regard Science Management as an essential component to their research workflow and begin to integrate formalized project management into their regular practise.
