On 30 September, in the frame of the Researchers’ Night event series in Hungary a workshop entitled ‘Research management, an emerging career opportunity within the research and innovation ecosystem’ was held by HETFA Research Institute at Óbuda University.

The workshop provided an opportunity for participants to learn about the secret life of RMA professionals. The event ended with a roundtable discussion on the research management profession with the participation of HÉTFA colleagues: Virág Zsár (Senior Grant Advisor), Krisztina Kovács (Senior Project Manager) and Dávid Pinczési (student at the Corvinus University of Budapest), who was a former foRMAtion mentee at NOVA University of Lisbon during the summer. The roundtable was moderated by Katalin Oborni (Senior Project Manager). During the discussion, different projects such as foRMAtion (Erasmus+), RM Roadmap (Horizon Europe) and V4+WB RMA Network (International Visegrad Fund) projects were showcased, as successful initiatives aiming to support the recognition and development of RMA professionals in Europe.
