This session will serve as an introduction to research design and provided guidance for the structure of research planning. The course leader will overview the main areas of research design and teach techniques that will allow participants to design quality research projects that are more likely to be published in high impact international journals and eventually used (and cited) by other research groups around the world with the associated potential for future collaborations.
This Course is intended for early career researchers.
