This map shows where the Native Americans have migrated in the United States over along period of time. The interesting aspect about this map is that they did not migrate in one particular place. They migrated all over the south, east, west and north of the country.

there are many debates about where people migrated to or from. a big debate on the subject is the native americans deriving from china and migrating here. my opinion on that is that the native americans probably derived from another country but not asia. this is what i believe because they do not look like the typical asain people that you see today

There is a lot of debates about migrants all over the world. There are questions of where these people came from and why they went where they did. One big debate is whether the Native Americans came from Asia to North America and whether there was one or more waves of them.

EVENT: 26 - 28 November 2013, Dublin Ireland - Research Project Management Training Workshop | MDIn | Scoop.it

 

AquaTT are pleased to announce the November dates for its popular Research Project Management Training Workshop.

 

The workshop will take place from the 26th to the 28th of November 2013 in the AquaTT offices based in Dublin. With twenty-one years of experience in EC-funded research projects, AquaTT as part of its Mentoring, Training and Advisory Services has devised a robust three-day Research Project Management Training Workshop primarily aimed at Researchers and Communications and Project Officers.

 

This practical three-day training workshop will focus on capacity building and will provide participants with (i) an understanding of the lifecycle of EC-funded research projects, (ii) a skillset to increase their ability to efficiently project manage their work, and (iii) the opportunity to apply these skills to real issues that occur in research projects.

 

The training will be provided by several experienced AquaTT trainers and will encompass real case studies and scenarios.
 
The agenda briefly entails:


Day 1: Setting the Scene - providing a framework for the management of research projects from policy drivers during the application phase to internal relationships during the implementation phase.


Day 2: Skill-based learning - equipping participants with the knowledge and skills to understand the key challenges involved in project and financial management and also focusing on relationship management.


Day 3: Applied Project Management and Project Sustainability - providing tools to successfully manage a research project while taking into consideration key issues, including performance measurement of project outputs and outcomes. The programme will conclude with an exploration of how to achieve and maintain success in the EC-funded research project environment.
 
For further information please see the attached flyer (http://www.aquatt.ie/index.php?option=com_acymailing&no_html=1&ctrl=url&urlid=356&mailid=48&subid=5206). If you are interested in attending please contact AquaTT Project Officer Olivia Daly (olivia@aquatt.ie). There are a limited number of places so an early indication of your interest is recommended.
