We promote co-operation, exchange of information and enhance the professional development of our members.

Finn-ARMA Network

brings together research administration and management experts from higher education institutions and research institutes in Finland. Network’s core mission is to promote co-operation, exchange information and enhance the professional development of its members. Currently the network has ca. 500 members collaborating in ca. 20 thematic working groups where the most of the actual activities take place. The thematic working groups are accessible via Finn-ARMA’s wiki page.

At the heart of the network’s activities is the idea of bottom-up action, which is born from the experts’ own need. The activities of the working groups are shaped according to the needs of the group members. The network has an executive committee tasked to enable continuity of activities and take care of the general matters.

Finn-ARMA network co-operates with other national parties providing its expertise for joint projects and contributing to the general development of its field. In case you wish to contact us, then please either contact a relevant thematic group leader, or the executive committee.

The annual Research Service Days (Tutkimuspalvelupäivät) is a professional event for research administration and management experts at universities and research institutes. It is arranged by one or a few institutions at a time, in a round-a-robin fashion. Research Service Days 2021 is organized by the University of Turku and Åbo Akademi University, in close cooperation with Turku University of Applied Sciences. The event in 2022 is planned to be arranged in Oulu.
