PERFORM 2nd Management Meeting. Steyr, Austria
Recruitment took some time to ensure an open, transparent, and merit-based process. We are happy with the outcome: we were able to recruit 15 well-qualified ESRs who should start on the 1st of September.
To ensure a good start for our new project members, a lot of administrative issues had to be worked out. That is why we held our second management meeting at the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria (Fachhochschule Oberösterreich – FHO) on 12.06.2018 – 13.06.2018.
We also planed the first training week-long event in October in more details by defining lectures, courses, speakers and material. To ensure a well-organized document management of this material we agreed on the use of Moodle as a training platform. To be able to provide tailored training that fits the individual need of the ESRs, we agreed on a structure of a Personal Career Development Plan. We are sure these measures will provide our ESRs a good training environment.
Also a lot of organisational matters like the committee structure, meeting schedules, document management, reporting, research data management, and outreach activities have been discussed.
Overall it was a very productive and successful meeting and we think we are well prepared for our ESRs to arrive and start their training.
