The International Network of Research Management Societies (INORMS) brings together research management societies and associations from across the globe. Its purpose is to enable interactions, share good practice, and coordinate activities 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 RMAN-J (from June 2021 – May 2023).
At the INORMS International Congress in May 2021, the Hiroshima Statement was formally signed by members of the INORMS Council. An initiative led by RMAN-J, the Research Manager and Administrator Network Japan, the Statement enshrines a set of 5 principles and responsibilities common to the collective memberships of INORMS member associations.
INORMS Sister Association Reciprocal Benefit Scheme (ISARBS)
ISARBS is a new initiative that allows participating members of the INORMS community of research management associations to benefit from discounted rates on certain events, publications and other products offered by other associations in the INORMS community.
