BESTPRAC meetings continue to be an open and inclusive space for sharing best practices among the RMAs, also aiming at providing guidance to the most relevant topics identified by our community. We are preparing a combination of plenary sessions and parallel sessions, whereas one parallel session will be dedicated exclusively to financial topics, while the other will cover non-financial topics in grant writing and project management.

Participants do not have to be EARMA members in order to participate.


The detailed final agenda is available here.  


The meeting will run in parallel sessions:

Working group 1: General (Administration/Management & Legal)

Working Group 2: Finance
