EARMA facilitates the coming together of communities around specific topics in the form of "thematic groups". These thematic groups meet regularly to network, share best practice and discuss their area of interest in-person and online. Events feature a range of experts discussing the theme and attendees are encouraged to participate by sharing their experiences and asking questions.

EARMA is currently supporting the following thematic groups:
 

Ethics And Research Integrity Officer Network (ERION)
