EARMA and partners were very pleased to launch the RM Roadmap project in Belgrade, Serbia, September 8, 2022. EARMA is delivering this important project to support the strengthening of an inclusive research management community in Europe. Working with our partners, RM Roadmap will chart a course for the future of research management (RM) in Europe and a community to support its delivery. It will be conducted over 36 months and is funded to the amount of €1.5m.
The overarching objective of RM Roadmap is to identify and adapt the research management capital base of the EU, including the widening countries, and emerging needs of its current and future research management workforce to improve the EU’s competitiveness and sustain its economic performance.
RM Roadmap will allow existing European networks to connect on a smart community platform which will enable an unprecedented consultation process in research management in the world. This co-creation process will gather the existing communities and expand upon them to reach two main objectives - To create and inform a bottom-up consensus on the future of RM in a roadmap, and to inform the community about existing training, networking, funding, and career mobility opportunities.
