ARMA Induction Workshop (not included in INORMS fee)

The aim of the workshop is to provide research administrators who are new to role with a broad overview of key aspects of the research administration role.

Most importantly the workshop will provide research administrators with an appreciation of the context they work in, both in terms of national research policy and how their role fits within their own institution.

By the end of the workshop participants will:

  • Have a clearer understanding of the relevant policy, legislative and funding
    frameworks relating to research and research administration in the HE sector.
  • Have an appreciation of the academic researcher’s agenda in doing research.
  • Know where they fit in the research lifecycle and who they need to work with to get
    the job done.
  • Have a broad overview of the key aspects of the research administration role,
    especially in relation to developing and costing proposals, administering the project
    during its lifetime and participating in REF, audit and statutory returns.

Target Audience

This one-day workshop is aimed at research administrators with a maximum of 12 months experience in university schools, faculties, research centres /institutes and central offices.

Prior Knowledge Required

Those new to research administration will gain a good overview of the core elements of research administration and will be equipped with the basic ‘body of expertise’ needed to carry out their roles. Those with a little more experience will be able to consolidate their knowledge and explore how different elements of research administration across the research lifecycle are linked.
