Research management training – workshop

TuTech Innovation will offer a ReMaT – research management training – workshop that will take place on 19/20 September 2016 in Hamburg at the premises of TuTech.

This ReMaT workshop is designed for early-stage researchers, particularly PhD candidates from the 2nd year onwards. The idea of European networking is very much embedded in the concept, and we encourage participation from many different countries at the workshop.

ReMaT is an interactive, intensive workshop providing an introduction to research management. It involves two resp. three international trainers and is held in English. The modules of the workshop cover exploitation of knowledge and entrepreneurship, acquisition of grants, intellectual property rights and the management of interdisciplinary projects. They are delivered in such a way that it challenges participants to consider different perspectives on how they might use their PhD education in a variety of career paths, and convince others to hire them.

The concept has been conceived and developed by a partnership comprising the Brussels Office of the Helmholtz Association, the Science Enterprise Centre at Oxford University’s Saïd Business School and TuTech Innovation.

ReMaT invites PhD candidates and postdocs in natural sciences, medicine and engineering from any research institution or university to apply for one of the 25 places. The participation fee is 595 Euro and includes the information package, lunch and coffee breaks as well as the networking event in the first evening.

TuTech Innovation which is organising the workshop was founded in 1992 as the technology transfer institute for the Hamburg University of Technology.
We are offering services regarding participation in EU funded programmes especially for publicly funded universities and SMEs. The mission of the Brussels Office of the Helmholtz Association is to help increase the participation of Helmholtz Research Centres in European research projects.
