Effective Project Planning and Evaluation in biomedical research
TDR has developed a skill-building course to strengthen capacity for project management in health research named the Effective Project Planning and Evaluation in Biomedical Research (EPPE). During the four-day course participants work on their specific research project and go through the various steps of project management.
By the end of this course, participants are expected to have: (a) clearly defined projects with set goals, objectives, and measurable indicators; (b) established a complete and realistic implementation plan as well as defined effective team work processes; (c) become more confident, acquired a more profound sense of responsibility and accountability and increased their awareness of values and challenges of working in multi-disciplinary teams; (d) fostered skills to effectively implement and monitor their projects and accurately report and evaluate its success.
It is expected that this training course will lead to realistic and well structured proposals, including clear research outputs which, in turn, will increase competitiveness for funding.
