Project Description

Managing and leading projects is a key skill that should be developed and nurtured throughout a researcher’s career. However, early career researchers (ECRs) in both Australia and Korea struggle with developing and managing projects in a professional manner due to limited training opportunities in project management fundamentals.

This is an interactive workshop to inspire ECRs from both countries with high research potential to learn the important skills, tools and strategies in professional project management. This leads to raising the quality of research project methodology and outcomes.

During the workshops, participants will learn from current, real-world project management examples shared by the experts from Australia and Korea, and receive close mentorship by senior researchers with significant industrial and research project management experience. The program will build a close-knit community of industry practitioners, senior researchers and ECRs, facilitating long-term research collaborations between the two countries.
