Core Facility Course

core facility leadership and management course by gerbi-gmb & hfp consulting

Core facilities are to become the heart of research institutions; however, their managers are still not always recognised as the high-level experts that they are. Sometimes they feel overwhelmed by the unexpected complexity of the role.
