    It is my unreserved pleasure to announce that DARMA has a new President: Annedorte Vad, Head of the Research Support Office at Copenhagen Business School (CBS) was elected by acclamation at the Extraordinary General Assembly at CBS on 20 November, and by 86 votes for (one against) from the online voting. You can get to know Annedorte better by reading DARMA's nomination of her to the INORMS Award for Excellence in Research Management, which she was one of the first recipients of earlier this year in Edinburgh.

    I could not have wished for a better successor, and I am confident that DARMA will not only continue to be a relevant and important association, but will evolve and become even better under Annedorte's leadership. It feels really good.

    Now follows a transition period, during which all the legal and bureaucratic duties and powers are transferred from me to Annedorte. Sometime early next year, the formal handing over of the role as president will be transferred, most likely at the first Board meeting of the new year (the exact dates remain to be agreed upon).

    At the Extraordinary General Assembly and the web voting, the proposed amendment to the statutes was unanimously accepted. The statutes have been updated to reflect the amendment.

    Efter en lidt stille sommer begynder det at ske ting. EARMA har starte en tematisk gruppe om etik og integritet, der afholder næste møde i Bruxelles d. 8. november. EARMA udbyder også for første gang sin EARMA Early Stage Research Administrators Masterclass d. 15.–16.november, også i Bruxelles. Dette kursus er inspireret bl.a. af DARMA's introduktionskursus og oplægget ser meget spændende ud.

    D. 5. oktober afholdes der møde ved Lunds Universitet i DARMA's erfa-gruppe i personaleledelse. ERFA-gruppen er målrettet forskerstøtteledere med personaleledelse og flere oplysninger kan man få ved henvendelse til mig, Olaf Svenningsen eller gruppens tovholder, Pernille von Lillienskjold, AU.

    Så er der flere nye stillingsopslag:

    • Statens Serum Institut søger en forskningskoordinator, en stilling, som ser særdeles alsidig, interessant og spændende ud. Ansøgningsfrist 2. september.
    • D. 2. september er der også ansøgningsfrist til en stilling som Institutkoordinator ved Institut for Biologisk Psykiatri, Psykiatrisk Center Sct. Hans i Roskilde. Stillingen omfatter meget spændende forsknings, herunder iPSYCH.
    • Syddansk Forskerstøtte ved SDU's Sundhedsvidenskabelige Fakultet og Region Syddanmark har slået en stilling op som specialkonsulent. Det er "min" gamle enhed og det er en meget attraktiv stilling, hvor man vil arbejde i et dynamiskt miljø sammen med nogle af de bedste og sødeste mennesker jeg har arbejdet med. Ansøgningsfristen er d. 19. september.
    Jeg har tidligere skrevet om opslagene fra Juridisk Fakultet ved KU (frist 12. september) og Forskningsservice ved Lunds Universitet (frist d. 27. august).

    As the darkness of autumn is slowly approaching, many things are going on on the world of research support. Here is a brief summary:

    • Impact workshop: the presentation and handouts from the Westensee workshop on impact with Julie Bayley from Coventry University, UK, held at SDU in Odense on 11 October, are now available for members at the Impact workshop page...
    • EARMA Conference: The deadline for topic submissions to the EARMA Annual Conference 2018 in Brussels, Belgium, has been extended, and is now 3 November. Read more at EARMA's conference website...
    • There are four new jobs to apply for, one at the IT University and three at SDU. Check out the job ads here...
    And if anyone missed it in the last update, the documents from the SFU-DARMA application workshop on 11 September are available to members here... It's relevant for most of DARMA's members, and feedback would be very welcome. Also, the NCURA Magazine issue, The Magic of Metrics, is recommended as Autumn Break reading, available only to DARMA members.

    Winter is coming, as they say, and most of us are back in the treadmill. I hope all DARMA members had a good, relaxing summer vacation, even though the weather left a lot to be wished for. I had a nice hike in the Sarek Mountains in northernmost Sweden in August (see some photos here...) and we got out just barely ahead of the first real snow storm. Unfortunately, I also caught some bacteria and went down hard with unpleasant infections and was on sick leave until last week. I will spare you the gory details and just say that the recovery is going somewhat slowly, and I may one day catch up with the wall of mail that was waiting for me, or not...

    My first full day back at work was Monday, September 11th, this fateful date, which was also when the Ministry of Higher Education and Science (UFM), the Agency for Science and Education (SFU), and DARMA held a workshop on "Current themes in research funding and proposals". At the request of UFM/SFU, the number of participants was limited and small, but a report and the presentations from the meeting will be published here within the next days. It is my intention to follow up on the interesting themes from the workshop with DARMA events where broader participation is possible.

    Talking about DARMA events: the next Westensee workshop is now open for registration. The theme is the ever-popular "Impact in research" and Hanne Dahl Mortensen has followed up on her visit to Kent University in the UK (read about it in Hanne's DARMA Blog post here...) and invited Julie Bayley, one of the UK's top impact experts, to offer a hands-on workshop for DARMA members. The workshop takes place on October 11th at SDU in Odense, and I hope many DARMA members will take this unique opportunity. Participation is free of charge – for DARMA members...

    You have hopefully noticed that DARMA's popular "Kursus for forskningsadministratorer" is offered 15-17 November this year, and that it, too, is open for registration. Please share this information with all friends and colleagues who might be interested – it's very easy using the social media icons on the event page.

    More events are in the pipeline, and will be announced here.

    Finally, the Job Openings page is continually updated, and currently there are three very interesting ads open, among them one for a Legal Officer at Copenhagen University's EU Office. Keep sending you job ads to DARMA, it's the best way to make sure they reach the right people...!

    The message below is from NCURA's International Region to DARMA's members:

    Dear Colleagues,

    Is your institution looking for US funding opportunities? And if they do, is your office ready and fit to support them?

    Whether you need an update or are getting ready for looking into US funding opportunities, it might be the right time to start this August and travel to Washington for the largest gathering of research administrators and managers in the US: the National Council of University Research Administrator (NCURA) Annual Meeting from August 6 to 9, 2017.

    And while you are there, take advantage of traveling to Washington for the NCURA Annual Meeting by adding an extra day and enjoying an educational trip to the visit the National Institutes of Health for a dedicated ‘international’ focused program. Michelle Bulls, Director of the Office of Policy for Extramural Research Administration will be a keynote speaker and provide an update on the international aspects of NIH awards.

    Region VIII members will have this unique opportunity to visit the research facility and participate in discussions that are relevant for non-US institutions. Read the program here.

    An opportunity not to be missed: register for the NIH day on Thursday August 10 (Please note this is a separate website to the Annual Meeting registration.). Early bird registration closes 9 June!

    We are looking forward to seeing you in August!

    The NCURA Region VIIII / International

    On the initiative of EARMA, a number of organizations in Europe has formulated a "postcard" with statements and recommendations on the future of European research. If you agree, please help spreading the postcard text in your own network, on social media and wherever it is appropriate.

    Here is the postcard text in full:

    "Making European Research Stronger

    The European Framework Research Programme is one of the major success stories of the European Project. It promotes scientific excellence, international cooperation and research cohesion at a scale unmatched by any other programme in the world addressing research problems beyond the scope and capability of any single country.

    To build on this success and to enhance Europe’s role as a research powerhouse, the Union must:

    • Maintain ‘Excellence’ as the most important selection criterion across all of H2020 and into FP9;
    • Enhance the trustworthiness and transparency of the evaluation process;
    • Implement mechanisms to address the low success rates which are raising participation costs and reducing the attractiveness of the programme;
    • Address today’s global challenges which need the involvement of a wide variety of disciplines, including those that investigate humans, their culture, history, values and behaviour and which must also be reflected in research agendas;
    • Substantially increase the funding allocation to both the ERC and MSCA programmes;
    • Incentivise participation of all countries in the European Research Area (ERA) without compromising excellence in any way;
    • Invest in frontier-led and collaborative, cross-border research, and maximise its impact on the citizens’ social, economic and cultural well-being across all areas of H2020 and FP9;
    • Develop a more sophisticated and nuanced definition of ‘impact’ and an enriched and broadened definition of ‘innovation’. Apply the definitions consistently and appropriately, reflecting the differences between project types and durations;
    • Further support open science ensuring benefits for society;
    • Continue the process of simplification to reduce administrative barriers for all participants;
    • Our associations remain fully committed, individually and collectively, to engage in dialogue with the Commission on these and other issues.”
