Using Project Management for Academic Research

The application of project management principles for academic research is getting more attention as the parallels and benefits are evident.  A research project is similar to a business project in that they both have specific objectives, partners, risks, resources, a schedule, and budget that need to be adhered to.  Applying project management principles to research will give researchers the tools and techniques to complete their research in a timely and methodical manner and will allow the researcher to have a gauge to know where they are at in their plan.    

As part of Vancouver Island University's Research Month we invite you to join this free webinar and learn five project management techniques that can be applied to research projects!   Upon learning these tips and templates, participants will be able to better plan, manage and control their research projects.
