BESTPRAC-EARMA virtual meeting | November 2020

BESTPRAC-EARMA Virtual Meeting

November 25-26, 2020 | Zoom platform


We are pleased to announce the next BESTPRAC initiative, an online event organized with EARMA, which will take place on November 25-26, 2020 on the Zoom platform.

Many thanks to Andjela Pepic and Maja Skocanic from BESTPRAC and Nik Claesen from EARMA for acting as coordinators of the meeting!



Although our COST action officially ended in October 2019, the former BESTPRAC Core Group has remained active and working hard to find solutions to keep our network activities alive beyond COST's financial support. 

As one of our sustainability initiatives, we have been working for a while to explore a joint future with EARMA and, as our first joint endeavour, we are organizing the first BESTPRAC-EARMA meeting! This event will be the first step in a mutually agreed pilot of one year.



DateidownloadPreliminary Programme

The event programme has been tailored according to your needs, as indicated by the answers to the survey we sent out in September. We tried to include a variety of speakers, from our valuable BESTPRAC community, external speakers like the European Commission and Sean McCarthy from Hyperion, to RMAs who we are just starting to collaborate with and can complement our knowledge base.

Because of the complexity of holding an online event, there will not be break out sessions by Working groups we have gotten used to in our previous work, but we have tried to cover topics that are of interest to different RMA profiles and hope everyone will find something for themselves. Time for discussion is envisaged after each session so feel free to get your questions ready!



Due to the online nature of the meeting and being fully aware of the difficulties a lot of RMAs face in finding resources to continuously update their knowledge and improve their professional skills, we have decided to keep this meeting open to all RMAs in order to enable participation of colleagues that are new to the profession or the ones that have not been able to previously participate in BESTPRAC or EARMA.

In case you are interested in attending the meeting, please register here by November 25.

Registered participants will receive the Zoom link by e-mail a few days before the event.


We are very excited to see you again soon (even if it is online)!
