NCURA Global Workshops and Webinars

NCURA has hosted workshops in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia focused on the fundamentals of research administration, including best practices in grant proposal preparation, U.S. funding opportunities for international researchers, how to manage U.S. federal grants, etc. These workshops also serve as venues for forming research collaborations and partnerships while also enabling research administrators to develop their professional networks.

The aim of each workshop is to provide participants with the opportunity to learn research administration through a combination of formal presentations, case studies, and group discussions. Our workshops can be held and prepared for any institution worldwide, and we encourage our participants to share best practices and to learn from each other.
