Conference and Events 2021 Update
Cancellation of the 2021 ARMS Perth Conference
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant uncertainty, making planning and delivery for any in-person events very difficult. After much consideration, the ARMS Board has made the difficult decision to cancel the annual in-person conference in Perth for the foreseeable future.
With this in mind, we still want our members and partners to continue to be active and engaged, even during these periods of adversity. Therefore, we have been forecasting a schedule of virtual events for 2021.
Virtual Events in 2021
In 2021, ARMS will be offering a range of events about current issues of interest in the research management profession. Here are some events currently planned for delivery:

ARMS HOT TOPIC WEBINAR
90 MINUTE WEBINAR ON FOREIGN INTERFERENCE
The requirements of the foreign interference legislation have introduced new monitoring and reporting requirements which many institutions are finding difficult to implement. This 90-minute webinar will feature a panel session that will focus on practical mechanisms that different universities are using to manage these requirements. The session will be of interest to Research Office Directors, senior Research office staff and others with responsibilities for managing foreign interference requirements.
Panellists to be announced soon!
Foreign Interference Panel Session
1. What are the real requirements to deal with foreign interference?
2. How is the research sector managing foreign interference? How is this nuanced for different disciplines?
3. How can we work with government to best manage foreign interference?
Panellists will also address questions from registrants collected prior to the webinar as part of the panel session.
Please forward your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Maximising Partnerships between Research and Advancement to Increase Funding
As research institutions plan for the future there is a need to diversify grant funding in an increasingly competitive environment. At the same time granting bodies and foundations are looking to collaborative models within and between institutions to maximise their research funding and create greater research impact. Research Offices and Advancement Offices are both engaged in attracting research funding into institutions. Although traditionally the two offices have operated independently, the changing landscape highlights the need for these offices to collaborate better to diversify and increase funding.
The Australasian Research Management Society (ARMS) and the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) are jointly hosting a two day workshop detailing how Research Offices and Advancement Offices can effectively work together to increase research funding. This inaugural joint event will include talks, panel sessions and case studies on effective collaboration, as well as being beneficial to senior leaders responsible for research and philanthropy, staff of Research Offices and Advancement Offices, College and Departmental staff responsible for attracting research funding.
REGISTRATION DETAILS COMING SOON!
