ARMA, the Association of Research Managers and Administrators UK, welcomes you to the biennial congress of the International Network of Research Management Societies. We’re delighted to be hosting this seventh INORMS congress, in the wonderful city of Edinburgh, bringing together our UK members with delegates from across Europe, Africa, Asia, Australasia and the Americas.

The Congress will feature a variety of plenary sessions, seminars and workshops covering key research management topics, specifically exploring our theme, Promoting Global Research Management, Supporting Global Research Challenges. The programme will be enhanced by a variety of opportunities for delegates to develop their personal and professional skills, and build their CV.

Edinburgh – Scotland’s vibrant capital city – will play host to the Congress, providing delegates with access to the history, arts, culture and natural heritage that the city has to offer. Edinburgh welcomes nearly 4 million visitors each year, and is geared up to extend that welcome to our INORMS participants.

So join us for a braw time in Auld Reekie! As JK Rowling has said of Edinburgh, ‘It is one of the most hauntingly beautiful places in the world, the history is fascinating, the men are handsome and the whisky is delicious. But don’t eat the macaroni pies.’
