BESTPRAC Thematic group meeting | September 2022

BESTPRAC Thematic Group Meeting

University of Belgrade - School of Electrical Engineering, Serbia

September 6-7, 2022

We are pleased to announce the first meeting of the BESTPRAC Thematic group, which will take place in person, at the University of Belgrade - School of Electrical Engineering, Serbia on September 6-7, 2022!

Thank you to Marija Šola Spasić from University of Belgrade - School of Electrical Engineering and Marina Matović Kostić from the Center for the Promotion of Science for acting as local organizer of our meeting.



After three very successful virtual meetings BESTPRAC and EARMA jointly organised, the collaboration between the two networks is taking a step further and BESTPRAC is becoming a thematic group within EARMA! You can read more about the cooperation between the two networks here.

This is the first in person meeting since the end of the COST BESTPRAC project. Due to organisational requirements, the meeting will not take place in hybrid format.

Following the experience of our previous BESTPRAC in person meetings, we are preparing a full agenda, starting from September 6 at 9.30 and ending on September 7 by 13.30, giving you enough time to return home on the same day if you wish to do so.

BESTPRAC meetings continue to be an open and inclusive space for sharing best practices among the RMAs, also aiming at providing guidance to the most relevant topics identified by our community. We are preparing a combination of plenary sessions, panels and two parallel sessions, whereas one parallel session will be dedicated exclusively to financial topics, while the other will cover non-financial topics in grant writing and project management.
