With global research spending increasing rapidly, and a growing emphasis on international collaborations, professional management of research is essential. University leaders around the world are starting to see the value of building a sustainable research office, along with the research manager role. However, in many respects these roles are still highly adapted to their local research and funding environments.

To understand the growing trends in research management, and how the research manager’s role is changing in light of global challenges, we interviewed senior representatives of Research Management and Administration (RMA) organisations in Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe, North and South America.
