Announcement to members from John
I am delighted to announce that Mr Nik Claesen will commence as EARMA’s Managing Director on 1st March 2017. Nik has been recruited following a highly competitive open advertisement. This is a really exciting time for EARMA and Nik’s appointment will enable EARMA to deliver on its strategy and take the organisation on to the next stage of its development.
Nik has a wealth of experience of both EARMA and research management and administration. Many of you may already know Nik from the EARMA organisation, his work on the Professional development working group and the COST BESTPRAC network. Nik has been the manager of the European Liaison Office of Brussel University (VUB) for the past 6 years and worked as a bid consultant at the Programme Management Office of Imperial College in 2015.
I’m sure you’ll join the EARMA board and I in wishing Nik every success in this new and challenging role. I look forward to introducing Nik to you all personally at the EARMA general assembly in Malta on 24th April.John Donovan
