The Association of Research Managers and Administrators (ARMA) is the main body of choice for staff at Leeds who support research activity.
As of July 2014, a number of research and innovation support staff have signed up for one of the ARMA Certificate qualifications: Certificate in Research Administration; and Certificate in Research Management.
Further details are available via the ARMA website:
Students are required to attend various ARMA events too. The full programme for 2014/15 is available on the ARMA website
If you do sign up for either Certificate, please inform Elaine Warden, RIS, who will add you to the list of students for the purposes of internal networking and occasional progress meetings. These have been established to share best practice, reflect on the learning programme, and generally help and encourage each other on.
