Global and local research partnerships for a sustainable future

In a world that has reopened to new challenges and opportunities, the role of research management professionals has become more crucial than ever. This evolving landscape calls for a dynamic approach to managing global research partnerships, emphasising the need for robust relationships between researchers and strong connections among skilled research management professionals. These connections are vital for navigating diverse requirements and meeting increasing expectations in a sustainable manner.


The theme "Global and Local Research Partnerships for a Sustainable Future" is a simple articulation of how research management professionals must operate in this environment and the jointly convened conference is emblematic the reality of the environment with the jointly convened conference, ARMS 2024, serving as a testament to this reality. Uniting the established practices of Australasia with the emerging Malaysian research management ecosystem, this conference is a platform for sharing, learning, and understanding the nuances of this field.


Come to ARMS 2024 in Darwin to share, hear, learn and understand:

  • How are organisations engaging with new players in the research system whilst continuing to nurture relationships with existing government and industry partners.

  • How local contexts shape global perspectives and discuss strategies for research management professionals to enhance the impact of partnerships for a sustainable future. And

  • How you, as a research management professional, can build impactful partnerships for a sustainable future.


This gathering is not just an event but a pivotal moment for professionals to collectively steer the course of research management towards a more interconnected and sustainable future.

Preparing an abstract for a conference is an important skill for research professionals. The purpose of the abstract is to summarise the major aspects of what you plan to present to your audience - so its important to write a concise abstract that does your intended paper justice.

Your abstract will determine acceptance by the conference organising committee and will also determine whether those attending the conference attend your session or visit your poster - so learning to write an abstract is pretty important.

This session shares some key tips on how to write a clear and concise abstract that improves the chances of the abstract being selected by the conference organising committee and targets your intended audience.
