An important mandate of universities is to build capacity of graduate students to conduct ‘good’ research.

It is necessary for students to develop skills in planning, managing and implementing research – but this requires not only content knowledge and a good grounding in statistical concepts, it is also as important , if not more important, to develop effective interpersonal and technology skills.

Research therefore requires a holistic approach which integrates knowledge with personal strength. The latter is best learnt through examples – listening to ‘stories’ told by experienced researchers: issues and challenges that all researchers face and how these can often be turned into opportunities; how to build on successes and learn from failures.

The main objective of this series of skill development seminars is to invite scientists and researchers who have travelled on this road and who can profitably share these experiences. An additional objective of these meetings is to create opportunities for participants to meet and network with other researchers.
