The landscape of scientific research is changing. Today’s researchers need to participate in large-scale collaborations, obtain and manage funding, share data, publish, and undertake knowledge translation activities in order to be successful. As per these increasing demands, Science Management is now a vital piece of the environment. This panel discussion will host area experts whom have extensive experience with management in a science setting. Our goal is to motivate participants to regard Science Management as an essential component to their research workflow and begin to integrate project management techniques and tools into their regular practice
