About the resource: Managing Research Projects


This project focused on the development of project management skills - particularly those required to collaborate on research projects with partners at institutional, national and international level in the social sciences. Skills needs of early career, mid-career and established career researchers were identified through interviews as they commence, progress and conclude work on a project. The resultant framework was offered as a model for developing institutional strategies for developing researchers' skills at a regional level. A sample of researchers at each stage was interviewed to identify skills needs. The framework arising was used to develop guidance for consideration and trial among partner institutions in the midland region. The researcher sample was followed up over the project to explore their development. They also acted as a reference group throughout the study.


Original Project

The Managing Research Projects: Supporting Researchers in Collaborative Project Management project was funded as part of the ESRC Researcher Development Initiative (RDI)
