Action 17 frame

What is Action 17 and why does it matter for RMAs?

We thought it would be helpful to explain how EARMA’s activities are influenced by policy developments such as Action 17 in the new European Research Area policy agenda and look at how they fit into a wider pan-European strategy for research and development. This article explains why Action 17 is important for RMAs and why your national representatives should support it. Read more.

CRM Cohorts Prague 2022

This year, we received a massive amount of interest in our ESRAM course, to the point that spaces were filled very quickly. Our next ESRAM course will take place February 20-22, 2023. Please reserve your space as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Read more and register your place
