Research Administrator Day is celebrated annually on September 25th. Every research enterprise needs a scientific administrator to ensure its smooth operation. These specialists help scientists organize and conduct research. The work of such organizations is important because it not only moves science forward, but also motivates students to do science by providing grants and scholarships.
Research work is a direct path to new discoveries. Administrators accompany each study and perform several important functions – overseeing progress, monitoring compliance with the protocol, interpreting the results, and notifying the public about them.
- Scientific specialists are represented in various industries and areas – medicine, education, politics, and business.
