SymbNET event for Research Managers & Administrators

Research Managers & Administrators Capacity-building: Best practices for pre-award support in collaborative Project

SymbNET is organizing a meeting that will join Science Interface Professionals around Europe to discuss how Research Managers & Administrators can better support collaborative projects. This will be a one-day event (23rd May 2022) at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (FCG-IGC), Oeiras, Portugal, which will also have online participants.

Research performing institutions aim to create optimum research and a supportive environment enabling leading scientists to focus on science and collaboration. This assumes particular importance when applying for competitive funding for collaborative projects, where competition is high, rates of success are low and new requirements are constantly being requested, as in the case of the European Framework Programmes. This also involves deploying professional research manager administrators who are entirely familiar with the administrative and management requirements necessary for the type of applications.

The moto of this capacity-building event is to discuss how Research Managers & Administrators (RMA) can better support collaborative projects. What is expected from RMA? In this one-day event, there will be the oportunity for discussing this and other questions, and for networking, which will allow strengthening the connections among SymbNET partners and other European institutions, paving the way for joint applications to international funds.

The event is open to staff members from all institutions involved in SymbNET (FCG-IGC, ITQB NOVA, Kiel University, EMBL, and the University of Lausanne) and to staff members from other Portuguese and European research institutes that can benefit from this training. Registration is free but mandatory.
