International Network of Research Management Societies
Home    About us    Membership    Activities    Resources    Contact






INORMS brings together research management societies and associations from across the globe. Its purpose is to enable interactions, share good practice, and coordinate activites between the member societies, to the benefit of their individual membership

Each member society has its own distinct remit, constitution, membership and geographical base. The network enables the officers of the member societies to compare their national or regional issues, and to learn from each other. Through INORMS, we are able to transfer training course structure and content, adopt comparable support mechanisms, and jointly develop training materials.

The INORMS secretariat sits with the Association that hosted the immediate past INORMS Congress - it currently sits with the Australasian Research Management Society (from September 2016 - June 2018)




The Global Leadership in Research Management Programme

....seeks to provide participants with the tools they need to understand the global research drivers, priorities and environment, and the leadership skills required to navigate the challenges they pose.

It begins at the SRA International Annual Meeting in Vancouver, Canada in October 2017 and culminates at INORMS 2018, Edinburgh.
