Über uns


The network FORTRAMA is an affiliation of professionals working in the fields of research and innovation management at German universities and other German research institutions.

The network was founded in 2003, turned into an association 2018 and aims at

  • making available expertise on research management  
  • promoting the professionalization process of research managers  
  • organizing the exchange of experience
  • intensifying the networking of colleagues.

Our main activities include the organization of an annual conference (since 2003), the coordination of working groups on specific topics and the provision of training programs specifically tailored to the needs of our network members. This web site is our main instrument for coordination and communication within the network.

The association is steered by a board which consists of up to 10 people. Members of the board represent the network to the public and coordinate the annual conference, develop training programs and event formats, initiate working groups and administrate the portal.

The network FORTRAMA cooperates with various partners in Germany and is open for cooperation with European and international partners. If you are interested in becoming a member please refer to the page Registration.
