Research management - case studies in science management
Sponsor: European Association of Research Managers and Administrators
This was a project commissioned by the European Association of Research Managers and Administrators in order to create an evidence base to support professional development activities among senior research managers. Case studies of research managers were conducted in five research institutes and councils across Europe as a resource for EARMA's Graduate Studies Programme (this included one of the UK Research Councils). They formed the basis of a series of European workshops on the management of research. The case studies also serve as a foundation for developing a database on the experience and professional nature of science management in Europe.
