On the May 4, 2018, Peking University celebrated its 120th anniversary. A series of celebrations will be held this year. Being one of the important programs, PKU (Peking University) will hold a joint symposium with NCURA (National Council of University Research Administrators) on research administration.
The primary goal of the NCURA -PKU Research Administration Symposium is to create a supportive environment that allows research managers and administrators to reach their full potential to create, develop, communicate and transfer new knowledge. Recent years have shown that the global reach of universities world-wide have developed dramatically. For each institution, it is becoming increasingly more important to extend its network of international partnerships and collaborations in education and research. Amongst others this can be achieved by extending and deepening relationships with overseas research organizations.
The symposium therefore offers interested research managers and administrators a two-day professional development opportunity that focuses on the fundamentals of research administration, including best practices in grant proposal preparation, funding opportunities for international researchers, etc. This symposium provides an in-depth look at related issues through a combination of lecture, case studies, and a discussion of best practices, which also serves as venues for forming research collaborations and partnerships while also enabling research administrators to develop their professional networks.
