DARMA update 6 October 2017

06 Oct 2017 10:02 | Olaf Svenningsen (Administrator)

"Winther is coming" says an ad for a coffee shop (Winthers Kaffe) in central Odense that I pass on my way to work every day, and the chilly season is indeed upon us. That means work, but also many interesting things happening with DARMA. I would like to briefly write about four offerings available to DARMA members right now:

1. The Westensee workshop on impact in Odense next week with Julie Bayley of Coventry University. You can read more about it on the event page, and in Hanne Dahl Mortensen's blog post. If you wish to participate and get something to eat, please sign up today (Friday, October 6th)!

2. Materials from the DARMA-SFU workshop on grant applications that took place on 11 September 2017 are now available for reading and download on the workshop page (DARMA members only, login required). The workshop was a collaboration between Styrelsen for Forskning og Uddannelse and DARMA and participation was limited for practical reasons. We would like to follow up on the themes at the workshop by e.g. organizing follow-up events. Please tell us what you think either by commenting below or send me an e-mail.

3. NCURA Magazine's August 2017 issue on the topic "The Magic of Metrics" has kindly been made available by NCURA exclusively to DARMA's members, and can be downloaded as a PDF file from this page. I hope you will enjoy reading it as much as I did. My intention is to make similar deals with other organizations. NCURA Magazine is a natural first try, since I was Global Contributing Editor 2013-15. NCURA is one of the world's biggest RMA associations and in my opinion, every research manager should attend at least one NCURA conference in their life.

4. There is only one single place left for DARMA's intro course for research administrators, so if you wish to participate, don't wait!

As always, there are many interesting job ads on DARMA.dk, currently 5 positions at CBS, Region Hovedstaden, DTU and UC Nordjylland.

Don't forget to submit sessions to EARMA's 2018 Annual Conference in Brussels; the deadline for submissions is 15 October 2017!

Next week, I will be going to SRA International's Annual Conference in Vancouver, Canada and the FtoF meeting of INORMS Board. You may follow my doings in Canada on Twitter, and I will of course write here, too.

Finally, I have been invited to present DARMA at DFF in a couple of weeks, and we plan to organize a DARMA visit to the new DFF office in Odense, as soon as DFF has found its place after reorganization, name change and relocation.
