ARMS is an international organisation dedicated to the professional development of research managers and administrators, the promotion of the profession of research management and the enhancement of the research enterprise.

The Society achieves this mission through:

  • Personal relationships, presentations, formal and informal meetings and publications;
  • Developing and promoting professional standards for research management in Australasia consistent with international best practice; and
  • Improving the interface between research and its management.

 We value

  • A stronger, vibrant research sector in the region;
  • High standards of research governance including the protection of integrity and ethics of research; and
  • The profession of research management as integral to the research endeavour.

We have chapters covering all of Australia, New Zealand and into the Pacific and Singapore.
