How to manage researchers and teaching staff in the forestry, wood and furniture sector?
Every institution is faced with strong competition. They must continually struggle to obtain funds, maintain floor space, attract students and, at the same time, ensure that their staff provide a good learning experience for their students and quality research for the community. Successful institutions are those that are well managed.
InnovaWood organises a meeting to share best practice between Directors, Heads of Department and others with managerial responsibility for researchers and teaching staff in the forestry, wood and furniture sector. The aim of the meeting is to provide leaders with an opportunity to improve the performance of their departments by the principles of management by quality. The meeting is concerned with the administration and management of staff rather than the technical aspects of what they provide.
When: 17 June 2015
Where: Vienna, Austria
Registration deadline: 15 May 2015
The meeting will revolve around the following discussion points:
1. Benchmarking of staff activities, e.g. numbers of papers published, teaching hours, research students, income generation, etc. ;
2.Tools to monitor staff activities;
3. Evaluation of staff activities;
4. Incentives for staff;
5. Creating a team spirit within the department/group.
