Future Research Leaders Program

Future Research Leaders Program

The Future Research Leaders Program (FRLP) was developed collaboratively by the Group of Eight universities (Go8) to build skills and knowledge in research leadership and management. Building the capabilities of our researchers is integral to The University of Melbourne becoming one of the world's leading research universities.

The FRLP comprises eight separate modules that explore the effective principles and practice of research leadership. These modules are designed for researchers who are currently chief investigators, managers of the grant and funds process, or who are hoping to become a principal investigator on a project.

The modules include:

Module 1: Research Strategy and Planning
Module 2: Commencement and Collaboration: putting ideas into practice
Module 3: Governance and Compliance: Protecting yourself, your research and your University
Module 4: Intellectual Property and Commercialisation
Module 5: Financial, Resource and Risk Management
Module 6: Grant and Contract Administration
Module 7: Managing People in a Research Context
Module 8: Project Closeout

The FRLP is currently not available as it is undergoing revie
