Research Programme Managers’ Network

The North-West Research Programme Managers’ Network (RPMN) was established in 2013 to encourage, facilitate and support effective research management. The RPMN is a peer support network where central issues in research grant management are discussed, and as a collective, members can make a meaningful contribution to research innovation.
