Symposium

The Society has a tradition of publishing contributed papers and posters designed to advance and enrich the body of knowledge of research administration and management as an art and science during its annual meeting. Nomination forms are emailed to SRAI International members at the beginning of each year. 

Papers and Posters should represent an important contribution to the research administration body of knowledge or successful demonstrate significant milestones of success that are of interest or importance. They should not be used as a marketing resource for an institution's success, but should articulate advances in research administration or management.
