Within the framework of the foRMAtion project, two colleagues of Corvinus University of Budapest have been working on the development of a teaching material for a curriculum of a 2-semester-long course for BA students from March to September 2020. The development of the teaching material was completed and it was supported by valuable inputs from experts working in several fields within the university: researchers in the field of international studies, management psychology, pedagogy, and RMAs. As a result, a teaching material consisting of four modules was elaborated. In 2021 (in two semesters) it is piloted in three universities and will be finalized according to the feedback of teachers and students.

The aim of the course titled Research Manager as a profession in the EU ecosystem: concepts, tools and practice is to provide students with insight and experience in the field of research management and administration. In the first (spring) semester, two modules are piloted. Module 1, titled Research methodology and design has been completed by the seminar group at Corvinus University. Aiming to gain direct experience, two RMAs and a researcher colleagues were invited to the course in order to share their experiences. The students actively participated in the activities designed to help acquiring the knowledge elements on the one hand and developing the soft skills on the other.
