    Project Manager should be an experienced researcher (e.g. post doc, team or group leader, professor) involved in the project.
  • For educational purposes:
    Project Manager should be the responsible instructor of the course.
  • For other purposes:
    Project Manager should be e.g. a project manager or a technical coordinator for a collaboration project.

Key responsibilities of a Project Manager

  • Project Manager is responsible for adding and removing project members, or transferring Project Manager duties to another project member. Project Manager is also a member of the project.

  • Project Manager acts as the primary contact person in communications with CSC.

Project Manager's responsibilities are described in detail in the General Terms of Use for CSC's Services for Research and Education.
