ReMaT aims to provide best-practice research management training for the next generation of Europe's scientists by developing and establishing training courses and materials in research project management suitable to the needs of doctoral students. To overcome the lack of training opportunities currently available to this specific target group, ReMaT will develop a set of training modules for doctoral candidates in the life science that will introduce them to management and exploitation issues related to conducting research at a European level. Among the topics to be addressed are European research funding, international collaborative research projects, IPR and legal issues, specific issues of ethics and clinical practice relating to research projects in the life sciences as well as exploitation issues and knowledge transfer. The project partners will develop the course materials and adapt them to fit the current needs and situation of European doctoral students in a pilot series of workshops. ReMaT thus directly supports young scientists who want to develop management skills for scientific and innovation management for their future careers and focuses specifically on the needs and level of experience of early-stage researchers. The project will contribute to enhancing the ability of the next generation of leading researchers to take advantage of European funding opportunities, work more effectively in collaborative European research projects and exploit the knowledge produced by research project by helping them to acquire the skills and competences they need to carry out research projects independently at an early stage of their scientific careers. The project partners will continue to use the course material developed in ReMaT to conduct future workshops on science and innovation management and expand outreach to the target group of doctoral students at universities and research institutions throughout Europe'.
