Management skills for scientific leaders


Scientists today are increasingly confronted with management tasks, in addition to their research and teaching responsibilities. The necessary basics, however, are not taught as part of their university curriculum. To fill this gap, the Schering Stiftung, in cooperation with the Center for Science & Research Management in Speyer, has developed the Young Leaders in Science training program. The training program has been successfully carried out seven times. The last round for the time being took place between 2018 and 2019.

Young Leaders in Science imparted effective management skills and tools that are important for scientific leaders. In five modules of 2.5 days each, the participants improved their methodological skills and built a network where they can share their experiences from universities, research institutions, funding organizations, and foundations – far beyond the timeframe of the program. The modules featured small-group work, case studies, lectures, discussions, and best- as well as worst-practice examples.

Reviews 

“The program sensitizes young researchers to the many and diverse responsibilities that come with a leadership position in science. The various modules expand the repertoire of both internal and external leadership tools; they explore and deal with key factors when it comes to the conflicting priorities of research, administration, and leadership responsibilities."

Dr. Sander Bekeschus, Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology

“Participation in the program is both an honor and a means of career advancement. Almost all alumni today hold professorships or other leadership positions in science. We are very happy about that.”

Dr. Katja Naie, Program Director, Science, Schering Stiftung
