Monday, 26 September 2016
During the 2016 International Network of Research Management Societies (INORMS) Congress held in Melbourne from 11-15 September, Dr David Huang, Assistant Dean (Research Strategy) and Research Scientist at OER, received the inaugural Australasian Research Management Society-National Council of University Research Administrators (ARMS-NCURA) Fellowship.
This fellowship program aims to foster greater research collaboration between countries in the Australasia region and the United States as well as provide training to research administrators at ARMS and NCURA institutions.
As an awardee of this fellowship, Dr Huang will be heading to NCURA host institution Harvard University, where he will embark on a program of mutual learning and knowledge exchange. He will also share his knowledge and experience of how research administration management operates at NIE and identify best practices and local knowledge of his host university.
At the INORMS Congress, Dr Huang spoke about going beyond merely identifying and sharing best practices in research management to investigating current practices so as to drive advancements in both the theory and practice of research management. He also presented a paper that compared the experiences of two universities in facilitating interdisciplinary research between Humanities and Social Sciences and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics disciplines to bring forth the unique institutional and cultural differences involved in research management. His sharing was titled “Building the Science of Research Management”.
