EARMA members have the opportunity to secure €500 lump sum grants as a contribution to develop their practical know-how and experience in research management either as part of a planned visit abroad to other research institutions and/or to attend overseas a conference organised by EARMA or its sister professional associations.

10 EARMA Conference Attendance awards of €500 as a contribution to travel costs are available for eligible applicants towards attending the EARMA Conference in Odense, Denmark, April 2024.

The award may be used for travel tickets or registration fees. Payment of the award will take place after a final report has been submitted and approved by the EARMA Board.



The following eligibility rules must be met for all applicants:

  • Applicants must have a minimum of two years’ experience in research management and administration.
  • All current EARMA members (individual and institutional) of good standing may apply.
  • Applicants must be members of EARMA for at least the previous membership year.
  • Board and Awards Committee members are ineligible and remain so for 3 years after the end of their term.

Given the above, members may not hold grants in consecutive years or two grants in the same calendar year.



  1. To what extent does the application align with the mission of EARMA?
  2. To what extent will the proposed activity enhance and contribute directly to the applicant’s specific professional development goals and the applicant’s current work in research management and administration?
  3. How effective and appropriate are the measures to share the knowledge gained back to the applicant’s organisation, EARMA, and beyond?

Each of the three criteria will carry equal weighting. Two of the grants are earmarked for applicants working for institutions in COST.
