Workshops

The EARMA workshops are collaborative; problem based learning events, with interactive exercises and discussions. These student centred workshops are tailored to research managers allowing discussions of difficult issues, key topics related to the Certificate in Research Management Units. The event creates constructive dialogues and real-time interactions between the professionals.

Workshop aim

The workshops aims to

  • give the student a better understanding of the unit and topic
  • provide students with key messages supporting the unit assignment task.
  • raise key issues, sharing relevant and practical information
  • encourage students to engage in discussion and real-time interaction with peer professionals about the particular unit/topic.

The workshop also supports the participants in preparation for the unit assignment, the self-guided aspect of their learning toward the Certificate in Research Management qualification.

Workshop details

Location: Workshops are held either in Brussels, Belgium, or at the same location as the EARMA conference as pre or post conference workshop events.

Learning hours: Each workshop day will cover 8 hours formal learning, and participants will be required to undertake 2 hours preparation work at home prior the workshops.

The likely time commitment is to attend a 2 day workshop in October 2021, 1 day in April 2022 and 2 days in October 2022. Details of the workshops for the 6th cohort can be seen in the table below. The exact dates and modules will be confirmed shortly.
