Learning Solutions is holding a course for future research leaders on managing the finances, resources and risk of a project.

Future research leaders: financial, resourceand risk management (Module 5)
21 October

This module (developed by 'Group of Eight' universities) is designed to explore some useful principles and practices for managing the financial processes, assets and risks attached to research. Research projects must be budgeted accurately and operate within the funding and resource constraints agreed at start-up. The researcher must therefore carefully manage the resources to ensure they support the full research lifecycle.

The module involves a half-day, interactive workshop and will be facilitated by Danny Sun,Senior Accountant (Research) Corporate Finance, and Associate Professor Joel Mackay,School of Molecular Bioscience.
