Basics of Research Contracts Management for Research Managers and Administrators

SARIMA-logoOn the 23 and 24 July, SARIMA will host a workshop on the basics of research contracts management.  Aimed specifically at research managers and administrators, the focus of the workshop will be on financial and contractual aspects.

The workshop will on the first day provide participants with a broad overview of types of funding. It will furthermore deal with project financing in the pre-award stage as well as finalising the contract. On the second day project financing in the post-award stage will be discussed. On both days ample time will be dedicated to group discussions and practical exercises.

Please note that delegate numbers will be limited to facilitate practical sessions and discussions.

Who should attend?

The workshop will target Research Managers and Administrators dealing with pre- and post-award processes related to research contracts and awards.  The two presenters, Tendani Shandukani Nevondo who is a Research Business Development Manager, and Barbara Herweg who is a Research Project Co-ordinator  - both from Wits Commercial Enterprise (Pty) Ltd (Wits Enterprise), will facilitate discussions and group exercises to build awareness of getting to know your funder, the pre-award phase and sealing the deal.
