    On the initiative of EARMA, a number of organizations in Europe has formulated a "postcard" with statements and recommendations on the future of European research. If you agree, please help spreading the postcard text in your own network, on social media and wherever it is appropriate.

    Here is the postcard text in full:

    "Making European Research Stronger

    The European Framework Research Programme is one of the major success stories of the European Project. It promotes scientific excellence, international cooperation and research cohesion at a scale unmatched by any other programme in the world addressing research problems beyond the scope and capability of any single country.

    To build on this success and to enhance Europe’s role as a research powerhouse, the Union must:

    • Maintain ‘Excellence’ as the most important selection criterion across all of H2020 and into FP9;
    • Enhance the trustworthiness and transparency of the evaluation process;
    • Implement mechanisms to address the low success rates which are raising participation costs and reducing the attractiveness of the programme;
    • Address today’s global challenges which need the involvement of a wide variety of disciplines, including those that investigate humans, their culture, history, values and behaviour and which must also be reflected in research agendas;
    • Substantially increase the funding allocation to both the ERC and MSCA programmes;
    • Incentivise participation of all countries in the European Research Area (ERA) without compromising excellence in any way;
    • Invest in frontier-led and collaborative, cross-border research, and maximise its impact on the citizens’ social, economic and cultural well-being across all areas of H2020 and FP9;
    • Develop a more sophisticated and nuanced definition of ‘impact’ and an enriched and broadened definition of ‘innovation’. Apply the definitions consistently and appropriately, reflecting the differences between project types and durations;
    • Further support open science ensuring benefits for society;
    • Continue the process of simplification to reduce administrative barriers for all participants;
    • Our associations remain fully committed, individually and collectively, to engage in dialogue with the Commission on these and other issues.”

    Der er nu åbnet for registrering til DARMA's Årsmøde 2017, der afholdes 4–5. maj i Nyborg. Formatet er det samme som sidste år, dvs. mødet afholdes fra frokost til frokost og årets generalforsamling afholdes lige før mødet begynder.

    Programmet er ikke helt på plads endnu, da vi forsøgte noget ambitiøst, der ikke gik helt som ønsket, men de sidste punkter skulle være på plads før ugen er til ende.

    Tilmelding sker fra konferencens annonce-side og programmet og alt materiale (oplæg, rapporter, weblinks mv.) vil ligge på konference-siden inde på websitet (annonce-siden arkiveres nemlig og vil blive usynlig efter konferencen).

    On November 22nd 2016, Aarhus University, the Danish Think Tank DEA, and the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation will be hosting a debate conference on how Danish universities can better access the benefits offered by international recruitment.

    International recruitment is a matter of attracting the best talent worldwide – Danish or not – and promoting a dynamic workforce at the universities by opening up faculty positions to international competition. This exposes Danish researchers to what it takes to compete with the best performers internationally.

    Participation in the conference is free; read more here...

    Kom til temadag på SDU om Open Science og bliv klogere på de udfordringer og muligheder vores forskere mødes med.

    Hvad er Open Access? Hvordan lever forskerne op til fondenes krav? Hvad er data management – og hvorfor er det vigtigt? Hvem kan hjælpe forskerne med at navigere i en Open agenda?

    Det forsøger vi at besvare med hjælp fra dygtige folk fra nær og fjern, og fra jer! Dagen (16. november, gratis at deltage) indledes med en række oplæg om centrale emner, og efter frokost er der et antal spor, hvor du har mulighed for at deltage aktivt med spørgsmål og indspark til en spændende diskussion.

    On November 1st 2016, the Danish Think Tank DEA, and the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation organizes a seminar in Copenhagen on the topic of international research funding, prospects for funding beyond the EU. In connection with the event, a report by DEA and FI on the topic of the conference will be released. From the announcement:

    "University research support units (RSO) play a key role in supporting researchers in applying for money from international funding bodies – not least in the case of international funding bodies beyond Horizon 2020. DEA’s study, however, has had an explicit focus on researchers and managers at Danish universities rather than the RSO’s. Consequently, the study only scratches the surfaces of understanding the role of RSO’s in a strategic focus on raising international research funding beyond Horizon 2020. What are the prospects and limits for the proactive role of the RSO? What are the prospects for a coordinated effort between The Ministry for Higher Education and Research – i.e. the Innovation Centers – and the universities? And what is the potential for better collaboration between Danish universities?"
