IPSERA

Regional IPSERA Centres of Competence (RICCs) and Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

By recognising two types of IPSERA nodes - the Regional IPSERA Centres of Competence (RICCs) and the Special Interest Groups (SIGs) - IPSERA wants to promote community building and competence development within the network also between the Annual IPSERA Conferences. RICCs and SIGs legitimize their existence through organising activities (events, workshops) for IPSERA members and non-members throughout the year.

To become a Regional IPSERA Centre of Competence or a Special Interest Group, certain requirements must be met.

 

Regional IPSERA Centre of Competence

A Regional IPSERA Centre of Competence (RICC) is a local or regional community of active PSM researchers and educators. As minimum scale, we expect at least one chair dedicated to PSM, and at least three full-time researchers/educators in the area of PSM. A regional centre may be composed of members affiliated with different institutions in the same region. A key requirement is a statement of plans and ambitions for ongoing efforts to build/sustain a local PSM community, including at least one event per three years organised by the RICC. For renewal of RICC status, evidence of such efforts is required.

 

Special Interest Group

A Special Interest Group is an international, multi-institutional group of active PSM researchers and educators on a specific topic or theme. As minimum scale, we expect at least two, but ideally three full-time researchers/educators in the specific area of the SIG, as leaders of the SIG. As a SIG is meant to bring disparate researchers together, these leaders should be affiliated with different institutions. A key requirement is a statement of plans and ambitions for ongoing efforts to build/sustain a community of experts in the SIG theme, including at least one event per three years hosted by the SIG. For renewal of SIG status, evidence of such efforts is required.

Current IPSERA Special Interest Groups:
