The academic community of the UB is invited to take part in the event “The Future of Research Management Training in Higher Education – Insights from foRMAtion’s Teaching and Mentoring Experience to Professionalise Research Management”.
The meeting, the final open stakeholder event of the project foRMAtion, is going to take place in Brussels on 30 November 2022, from 9:00 to 15:00 and is hosted by the Liaison Office of APRE, the Italian Agency for the Promotion of European Research (event venue: Regione Lazio, Rond-Point Schuman 14 – 1040 Brussels).
The project foRMAtion – Innovative and smart module for potential Research Managers and Administrators (RMA) in higher education is an Erasmus+ strategic partnership, led by HÉTFA Research Institute, aimed to launch research management training in higher education institutions and promote the recognition of the RMA profession.
At the event, we welcome around 70 higher education executives and managers, policymakers, research managers and administrators, experts and any interested parties to join in the discussion about the professionalisation of Research Management and Administration (RMA) across Europe. They will examine the European policy context as well as the innovative tools elaborated and tested within the foRMAtion project to serve the professional development of HE students and the overall RMA community.
The curriculum and teaching methodology, the mentorship programme and the online self-development tools have been designed to bridge the gap between universities and current labour market needs of research performing organisations. Summing up the experiences of 3 years of intensive joint work, we will present our “Guide & impact assessment for educating and training RMAs at HEIs backed by policy recommendations”.
As the continuation of the project, two alliances are set-up aiming to boost the further operation and uptake of our outputs. For those interested in joining the foRMAtion alliances and will participate at the event in Brussels, two free mini-trainings will be offered, as side-events:
- one for HEI teachers and educators about the use of the foRMAtion Modules (29 November 2022)
- and another one for representatives of research performing organisations on foRMAtion’s Mentorship programme (30 November 2022).
The number of participants to these sessions is limited. Places will be attributed on a first come first served basis.
The registration form for the event “The Future of Research Management Training in Higher Education – Insights from foRMAtion’s Teaching and Mentoring Experience to Professionalise Research Management” can be accessed here.
