University of Ljubljana is hosting the 4th international meeting of the COST action BESTPRAC – The voice of research administrators – Building a Network of Administrative Excellence. The event gathers 85 research administrators, managers and advisors from 23 countires. The main objective of BESTPRAC is to promote a better and more consistent administration of transnational research projects, thereby supporting excellence in research. It will raise the understanding of the importance of excellence administration of research projects. 

Specifically, the network will establish connections between research projects administrators (including legal, administrative and financial staff in universities and other research institutions) in order to overcome their isolation, stimulate mobility and encourage professional development. This would help strengthen the retention and recruitment of project administrators and emphasise the need and importance of a profession that guarantees high quality support to S&T collaborative projects and networks across Europe.
