January 12 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm CET

Originating as the “art of generals” strategic planning has become an important tool for managing complex activities and organizations. Research is no exception. Indeed, clear strategies are often demanded from scientific organizations for purposes of planning, impact maximization, or communication. This seminar aims to equip participants with the basic tools to devise useful strategies. It will focus on strategies for research and include common pitfalls that should be avoided in strategic thinking.
