Happy Research Administrators Day!

To celebrate Research Administrators Day we decided it was time to learn more about how research management and administration looks like from a Global South perspective. So we had a chat with Therina Theron and Savita Ayyar.

Therina is the president of SARIMA ( Southern African Research and Innovation Management Association) and Senior Director of R&I at Stellenbosch University in South Africa.

Savita is founder of the consultancy Jaquaranda Tree and she is the lead of IRMI (India Research Management Initiative), a developing network for RMAs in India.

We talk all things research management and administration as seen from South Africa and India, the importance of international collaboration on RMAs and why you should all come to the next INORMS conference in Durban, South Africa in 2023.
