Our Antarctic Science Platform Manager, Caroline Pratt, has today received an esteemed career accolade. Caroline has become the first New Zealand-based Research Manager to be made a Fellow of the Australasian Research Management Society.
She was officially recognised at an awards ceremony during the annual ARMS conference today.
With over 25 years’ experience in research management, Caroline joined the Platform last September, and is a valued member of our team.
She was also the first New Zealand-based research manager to obtain Advanced-Level Accreditation and the only New Zealander to hold dual Accreditation (Foundation and Advanced Level).
Platform Director Nancy Bertler says the team is very proud of her achievement.
“This is a distinguished recognition of Caroline’s career and legacy and her ongoing contribution to the Antarctic Science Platform and Antarctica New Zealand.
“We are incredibly fortunate to work with some of the best in the business, our team is filled with experience and talents from multiple sectors,” she says.
Fellows of ARMS are professionals who have made a substantial contribution to the profession as a practitioner, mentor, trainer and or advocate throughout Australasia and Singapore. This accolade is only awarded to those whose contributions to research management are deemed exceptional.
