Research Administrators Community
Academic Executive Advisory Board Meeting
In order to improve our understanding of the needs of university leadership and the researchers they represent, in 2009 we founded an Academic Executive Advisory Board made up of international senior university administrators from the top research-focussed institutions. The board, made up of approximately 30 members from around the world, is made up of vice presidents for research, and (vice) provosts, They meet annually over two locations.
Through these interactions we hope to gain
- A better understanding of academic community workflow and needs
- Fundamental understanding of the future directions of academic endeavor, including education and research drivers
- Potential partnership and collaborative research opportunities
Membership: by invitation only
