EARMA Leadership in Research Management programme

  1. Research Administrators: Starting/beginners level. Individuals with up to three years of experience in research administration
  2. Research Managers: Individuals with at least four years of experience in research management and administration, gained in several of the areas covered by the units.
  3. Leadership in Research Management: Leaders and future leaders of ‘research offices’, ‘grants offices’ ‘sponsored programmes offices’. This group includes key relevant staff in RPOs and RFOs.
