Establishing and coordinating a multi-institution research centres is complex and time consuming, and limited “how to” resources are available. Recognising the challenges, and based on their own experiences, Lisa Lavey and Catherine Spooner (both CRE Managers), and Chilandu Mukuka (APHCRI Research Manager) conducted a study to document the issues and lessons learned.
This document has been prepared to assist new investigators, administrators and project coordinators in more efficiently and effectively establishing and managing multi-institution research projects.
