Professional Development in Research Management online short courses, through the WITS Digital Campus in conjunction with SARIMA

SARIMA in partnership with the WITS Digital Campus will be presenting a series of 6 online-courses focusing on the Professional Development in Research Management. Scholarly evidence from case studies and performance indicators shows that Research Managers and skilled administrators are key enablers of excellent research. As the impact of effective and efficient research management (RM) grows, so does the need for its professionalisation. These courses recognise this and seek to give research managers and those looking to make RM a profession within a various range of settings, key insights and skills into what it takes to manage research to deliver maximum returns.

Through this six-course collection you will not only learn about the fundamentals of research management – why research management is important in the knowledge economy and how best to structure and manage research projects effectively in line with best practice standards, but also get to explore the standards that make the research management profession a fast-growing area of specialisation. These courses will help you build your skills and enhance your credibility as a research management professional in your organisation and the industry as a whole.
