The course instructors are experienced science management leaders with proven skills in research infrastructure management. They will provide a dynamic recourse using their experiences in science and technology management, leadership, entrepreneurship and technology transfer.

The ultimate goal is to provide participants with an experience that translates into developing their leadership and business management skills.
