The Research Manager and Administrator Network Japan (RMAN-J) is pleased to host the 2020 meeting of the International Network of Research Management Societies (INORMS).
Monday, May 25 through Thursday, May 28, 2020
International Conference Center Hiroshima, Japan
Promoting Diversity in Research and Research Management Collaborations: More Trans-National, More Trans-Disciplinary, More Trans-Sectoral
RMAN-J has set the above theme for INORMS 2020 based on its following understanding. Academic collaboration in this interconnected world involves increasing interaction among academics from different countries and disciplines. Further, stakeholders outside of academia should join these discussions for better research management and administration. It is only through weaving diverse trans-national, trans-disciplinary, and trans-sectoral threads into a diverse tapestry that we can succeed in facing the complex global challenges of today.
This meeting provides the opportunity for research managers and administrators from across the globe to meet, to learn and to discuss issues of research management, to develop professionally, and to network. INORMS 2020 will have the following tracks:
INORMS was formed in 2001 to bring together research management societies and associations from across the globe. Its objectives are: to internationalize the body of knowledge on research management; to exchange best practice; and to develop international approaches to supporting research enterprise.
Current INORMS members (as of December 2018) are: ARMA, ARMA-NL, ARMS, BRAMA, CARA, DARMA, EARMA, Finn-ARMA, FORTRAMA, ICEARMA, NCURA, NARMA, PraxisAurill, RMAN-J, SARIMA, SRA International, WARIMA, and ACU. (For more information about INORMS, visit https://inorms.net)
INORMS Congresses have been held biennially since 2006 and are great opportunities for professional development. The last INORMS Congress was held in 2018 in Edinburgh. Pictures from INORMS 2018 are available here.
Founded in 2015, RMAN-J is Japan's professional association for those engaged in research management and administration, whose aims are to promote science, technology, and future innovation from Japan through the enhancement of research capabilities of Japanese universities and research institutes.
