The ARC in association with ARMS (Australasian Research Management Society), will again be hosting the Research Administrators’ Seminar.

This annual event will be held at the Hyatt Hotel in Canberra on Tuesday, 14 November 2017.

Research Administrators who wish to attend this event should complete the registration form.

Registrations will close Friday, 6 October 2017. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email

Please note, registrations are required to attend this event. It is recommended to book as early as possible to avoid disappointment as numbers are limited. Please note that the ARC takes no responsibility for travel or accommodation arrangements. 

This year, NHMRC will not be part of the annual Research Administrators' Seminar.

Instead, NHMRC will hold an information session on their new grant program—this information session will be held on Wednesday, 15 November 2017 between 9.00am and 11.00am at the NHMRC's Canberra office.

This will be an opportunity to hear about the latest information on NHMRC’s new grant program, followed by a question and answer session.

Please register, if you plan to attend the NHMRC new grant program information session.
