This was a great opportunity to present and discuss the concept of Professionals at the Interface of Science (PIoS), which was first introduced in the article, “The interface of science: the case for a broader definition of research management”. It framed the development of the foRMATion international curriculum, which will now be implemented at the Universidade NOVA de Lisboa, Corvinus University of Budapest and Sapientia Hungarian University of Transylvania. Interface of Science represents a new umbrella definition for professionals that work to support and create added value to Research and Innovation (R&I), and it covers the full diversity of these figures. We propose that “PIoS are typically neither researchers nor administrative support personnel, but rather signiﬁcant additional players that work at the interface of science, with speciﬁc professional skills that are essential upstream, during and down-stream the contemporary research endeavour, bringing speciﬁc value to the R&I ecosystem”.
