Research Management Skills for the Biomedical Engineer, 12th -15th July 2011, Leeds, UK

As part of the SpineFX Initial Training Network sponsored through the FP7 Marie Curie Provisions, we have available 10 funded places for early stage researchers at a workshop on Research Management Skills for the Biomedical Engineer from 12th to 15th July 2011 at the University of Leeds, Leeds, UK.

The course aims to give early stage researchers an understanding of the necessary fundamentals of management, including ethics, communication and intellectual property, for a career in biomedical engineering. This hands-on course will be delivered through a diverse range of teaching methods including group work, lectures, problem solving and case studies.

Evening: Registration, Ice Breaker Session and Dinner
Day 1 – Tuesday, 12th July 2011

The course, including accommodation, course materials and meals at the venue, is free to early stage researchers, that is to those within five years of starting their research career; however, all attendees are responsible for their own travel arrangements between the venue and their home institution. To allow the widest possible dissemination of materials from the course only two researchers from any given institution may be registered.

SpineFX is a multinational Initial Training Network (ITN) funded by the Marie Curie Actions 'People' programme and is centred on basic science and translational research between seven industrial and academic partners in the area of spinal fracture.
