    When Nature.com brings an article on Research Management and Administration (RMA) it certainly deserves our attention.

    The article focus on how Tadashi Sugihara, a Japanese researcher changed to RMA and how research administration has moved from being seen as a supporting role to increasingly come to be recognized in academia as a profession in its own right. The article mentions that numerous professional societies worldwide help administrators with career development and networking and data from the recent RAAAP survey is cited.

    Research Teams as a Goal: Anecdotal Tips and Action Plans for Research AVPs and other Research Administrators

    Karin Scarpinato, Sr. AVP for Research at Florida Atlantic University and a colleague of hers has published a book, which may be of interest to DARMA's members.

    In our normal jobs, we found that, even with all the professional development opportunities available, we were missing hands-on tools and strategies to address challenges that our team encountered. 

    So, a colleague and I created a start-up, "Research Ingenuity" (researchingenuity.com) to provide some of these hands-on tools, based on what we felt was missing in research administration.

    We recently published a book, "Research Teams as a Goal" The book is accompanied by on-demand short-courses, workbook pages and worksheets that can be found at researchingenuity.com. In addition, we provide customized consulting.

    Excerpt from Amazon

    Ever wondered how to get your research administration team to work well together, be effective AND have fun? This book will go over the characteristics of a great research administrative team, provides real-life examples and tools for you to easily implement in your team. Learn about creating a goal, team dynamics and communication tools based on our many years in research administration. This book has a novel structure, based on the "Think - Read - Act - Strive" concept.

    Research Administration and Management is a fascinating profession that spans the globe with ever increasing layers of complexity. The leaders of SRAI and the Danish Association for Research Managers and Administrators (DARMA) recognize the importance of maintaining good communication, excellent training, and strong global partnerships. That is why SRAI and DARMA are delighted to announce our new Sister Society membership category. This new category presents the opportunity for full DARMA members to join SRAI at no additional cost and to attend SRAI events at the reduced member rate.

    We believe this initiative will help build important bridges across our communities and allow information and knowledge sharing that will benefit the members of both organizations. DARMA members will have access to our Connect platform, SRAI’s popular monthly Coffee Talks, and other online resources. SRAI’s members will have an opportunity to meet many more research administrators with a unique perspective, explore differences and similarities in regulations and approaches, and learn about new developments in research administration that may be coming to the United States in the coming months and years (think Research Impact!).

    This new program has been in the pipeline a few years and we are delighted to announce it is effective immediately. Details on the program and registration can be found on both organization’s websites, at https://www.srainternational.org/get-involved/become-member-rates for SRAI and at http://darma.dk/srai for DARMA. This arrangement is voluntary, DARMA members will need to complete a simple and brief registration to join and start taking advantage of the joint membership benefits. We hope all of you are as excited about this initiative as we are. Join us in celebrating expanding our international partnerships and please take a moment to welcome the new members to our community!

    ARMA is currently leading a project on behalf of our main UK government research funders about due diligence in international research. You can find more information about the project here: https://arma.ac.uk/first-output-from-the-consolidated-approach-to-assurance-and-due-diligence-project/.

    The project will recommend the establishment of a ‘clearing house’ for due diligence – effectively a place where information required for due diligence on research organisations and partners can be stored and re-used to improve efficiency. This is similar to the FDP Clearing house in the USA: https://fdpclearinghouse.org/.

    ARMA have been working closely with the research managers in the USA who developed and run the FDP Clearing House and we would like to reach out to any other research managers involved in similar projects in other INORMS associations. If you are aware of any such projects, or any clearing houses (or similar) for due diligence in research please reach out to Jennifer Stergiou, who is also inviting to a discussion if you would like to know more about the project or the clearing house
