We are delighted to announce that BESTPRAC will become part of the EARMA family. The official announcement was made at the 3rd BESTPRAC EARMA Virtual Meeting May 24, 2021, during a very successful two morning event that saw us receive more than 1,000 registrations.
BESTPRAC will join EARMA as a thematic group, which will allow BESTPRAC to continue the excellent work that they have been carrying out since 2014. BESTPRAC started as a COST Targeted Network that gathers administrative, financial and legal staff at universities and research-driven institutions that are carrying out different tasks to support transnational external competition-based research projects, particularly those that are EU funded.
BESTPRAC has served as a platform for exchanging experiences, sharing and developing best practices, encouraging knowledge sharing, knowledge transfer and increasing efficiency in these fields. This alliance is a great match, and we will support BESTPRAC to reach our shared goal of building a truly inclusive RMA community in Europe.
This news follows a process that saw BESTPRAC and EARMA representatives coming together to explore a joint future together and two other well-attended virtual meetings. For further information on BESTPRAC, please visit their website here.
