Program Description

The EURESTMA certificate is a new program for European research and transfer managers. The program is organized by an alliance of leading academic providers that provide up‐to‐date knowledge on research and transfer management in a European context. The overall objective is to contribute to the professionalization of European research and transfer management and to establish an active international community of program graduates. The program follows a blended learning format, including self‐study and two on‐site weeks. The first week takes place in Osnabrück, Germany at the UAS Osnabrück, and the second week in Brussels, Belgium at the KoWi Office. 



EURESTMA is a comprehensive Research & Transfer Management program that includes six modules taught during two on‐site weeks, as well as a 'Project Action Plan' in which each participant will implement a change project at their institution supervised by our experts.

Target Group

Each year we envisage enrollment of about 20 participants in the program. We are looking for participants who are employed in research and/or transfer positions with at least two years of professional experience. It is helpful if applicants are responsible for strategic tasks, process organization, planning and designing systems in your institution. Applicants should be open to collaborate with international partners and initiatives. Applicants are expected to participate in both on‐site weeks and several online activities and should possess good proficiency in English.



In the current pilot phase the program is funded by the state of Lower Saxony. Therefore, we do not charge participation fees. Additionally, we will provide lunch during the two on‐site weeks. All other costs such as travel, accommodation, breakfast, dinner, and similar expenses are to be covered by the participants themselves.
