Supporting the coordination of multi-partner EU-funded projects

Promoted by Stockholm University

The role of coordinator of EU-funded projects is perceived as very prestigious, being associated with personal scientific excellence and strong leadership skills, and therefore very desirable to researchers to raise own visibility and impact. Nevertheless, many researchers tend to be put-off from taking up the role of coordinator due to all non-scientific responsibilities associated with it.

On June 9th 2022, 11:00 – 12:00 CEST, the UNICA Research working group hosted a webinar aiming to showcase the experience at Stockholm University in encouraging and supporting researchers to become coordinators of EU-funded projects.

Speaker: Ana Cordeiro, Stockholm University

The event was moderated by Maryam Hansson Edalat, UNICA Research coordinator and Head of Office for Research, Engagement and Innovation Services (REIS), Stockholm University.
