Italian term or phrase: responsabile scientifico and responsabile operativo
Comes from a university web site.

The first term (r.s.)is used in two senses: (1) to describe the person which organises and decides on the content of a course; (2) the person in a research centre which decides what research projects should be pursued.

The second term (r.o.)describes a person working in association with the first person but on more mundane matters.

Responsabile Materie Scientifiche e Responsabile Operativo


Explanation:
Since it is in a University context, I would use the term "Materie Scientifiche" and for the second since it deals with "Operations" I would say "Operativo" which is also generic enough to cover several aspects.

Hope it helps,
Elena
