After the success of the V4+WB RMA Network project, funded by the International Visegrad Fund, we are continuing our initiative to reinforce the network of Research Managers and Administrators (RMAs) in the V4+WB region. Our new project, V4+WB RMA Network Plus, also funded by the International Visegrad Fund and led by HETFA Research Institute kicked off on 1 August 2023 and will last until January 2025.

The partnership of 7 organisations from the Visegrad 4 and Western Balkan countries aims to reinforce further the network of Research Support Professionals, or in short, Research Managers and Administrators (RMAs). Through intensified knowledge exchange and capacity-building activities the project will contribute to the increased competitiveness of the Visegrad Four and Western Balkan countries in Research and Innovation. With the new project, we will continue cooperating with more ambitious activities (training schools, conferences etc.). The Launching event is scheduled for 17-18 October 2023 in Bratislava, Slovakia. The call for participation will be launched at the end of August/beginning of September.

Under the lead of HETFA Research Institute, the consortium consists of 6 more partners: Silesian University of Technology (Poland), Serbian Association of Research Managers and Administrators (Serbia), Czech Technical University in Prague (Czechia), University of Banja Luka (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Slovak University of Technology (Slovakia), GO2 Sustainable Urban Planning Organization (Albania).
