Short description: 

Project, task, and knowledge management tools can help teams of all sizes focus their efforts, improve productivity, and break down communication barriers. Besides the effect on productivity, as science becomes increasingly more collaborative and international, such tools can play an increasingly important role in reproducible, transparent, and auditable science.

In this webinar, we will clarify what project, task, and knowledge management tools are, how they compare to and supplement each other, and how they can help you manage your team and your project. We will discuss their application to academic work for both scientific and administrative functions of an academic lab.
