Don’t waste time! Manage your research project!

Research projects are characterized by a high degree of uncertainty and variability. Very often there are a lot of partners involved, and their duration is several years.

All this means that they must be properly managed.

In this interactive masterclass you will learn how to:

  • make sure that your project is managed in an effective and efficient way
  • set milestones within the scope of your project
  • set priorities and keep your focus
  • plan your activities on a daily and weekly basis
  • influence and communicate with your stakeholders in a respectful way
  • keep yourself and your team motivated
  • deal with setbacks, stress and urgent deadlines.


The workshop will be given by Wendy Van den Bulck and Tom Dewettinck, trainers/facilitators at True Colours cvba. (

Wendy and Tom have several years of expercience in training and coaching researchers in the domains of project management, leadership&coaching and communication. They have given courses and workshops at VIB, UGent, VUB, UAntwerpen and KULeuven.
