Proper project design, management and exploitation are key recipes for success in both science and business. Learning from strategies in the latter environment we can give us new visions on how to propose succesful research projects. This, eventually, will lead to better technology transfer and to a real improve on the society perception of science and on its impact in daily life economy. Within the framework of the MSc on Bioinformatics for Health Sciences we thought, some years ago, that adding a course on project management would be an excellent training for our students, with the perspective to make them aware of the role the society expects researchers to take, beyond the (extremely needed) basic science knowledge.
As the course has a wider scope than just for MSc students, we decided to propose the course as an external activity in which the MSc students are invited to attend.
The new 2010 edition of the course is organized by the GRIB, and it is available for registration and, following the experience of previous years is, doubtless, worth reserving some hours in our busy agenda to attend this extremely interesting and practical course.
