For Science Managers

Science management is by now an important part in the organisation of scientific projects. Being a successful scientific manager requires a various set of skills that needs to be extended and refined constantly. CESSMA, through its network of project managers, supports science managers by

  • being a central contact point for German science managers in the Earth system sciences.
  • transferring knowledge from experienced to new science managers .
  • creating opportunities to exchange and develop best practices for routine tasks (meetings, reporting, data management).
  • creating training options specifically tailored to the needs of scientific managers.
  • offering individual case consulting.
  • addressing common problems to funding agencies and scientists.
  • lobbying for the importance of scientific management.
