Final Report - REMAT (Development of research management training for doctoral research students)

Project ID: 37504
Funded under: FP6-LIFESCIHEALTH

Abstract

Scientific knowledge lies at the heart of the European knowledge economy. We need researchers who not only discover new knowledge, but also understand how to manage and fund research, transfer knowledge to others and develop and manage their innovative ideas for maximum social and economic benefit. In a global economy, employers seek people who are not only highly trained, but also highly adaptable and mobile, able to function effectively in a variety of different contexts, both academic and commercially oriented, during their professional careers.

REMAT was conceived and developed by a partnership comprising the Brussels office of the Hermann von Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres, the Science Enterprise Centre at Oxford University's Sa?d Business School and TuTech Innovation GmbH, the knowledge transfer arm of Hamburg University of Technology.

This report provides a summary of the experiences of the REMAT partners in developing the concept and pilot workshops. The content of REMAT has been developed through consultation with focus groups comprising experienced and early-stage researchers, senior industrial research managers, entrepreneurs and PhD programme directors. The workshops have been piloted at various locations in Europe, with both participants and external observers providing feedback. Overall, 126 participants representing 27 nationalities from 58 institutions took part. The report includes tables, photos and logos.
