The Research into Occupational Therapy and Occupational Science (ROTOS) Foundation https://www.rotosfoundation.eu/ plans to grow the research connectivity amongst the European occupational therapy and occupational science community. Its strategic aim is that knowledge from Occupational Therapy and Occupation Science research will be appropriately used to inform and shape European policy and practice, by establishing a strong European profile of Occupational Therapy and Occupational Science researchers that both supports access to occupation-based knowledge for the benefit for all people in Europe and strengthens occupation-based knowledge generation. Work to achieve the vision and aim began as an Occupational Therapy Europe standing committee in 2016 and in March 2020 ROTOS was registered as acharitable Foundation in The Netherlands and its bank account will also be held in the Netherlands.
The work of the ROTOS Foundation is overseen by a Board comprising up to 7 members. The Board mostly meets virtually (via Teams or Zoom) and meets around 10 times a year, with the annual meeting being held each June. In addition to a defined Board role, each Board member contributes to the delivery of the ROTOS strategy (2020-2025) and action plan. Fundraising essential for the Foundation as ROTOS is a charitable organisation which relies on fundraising, grants, and donations to take its work forward. We are seeking someone with skills and experience in these areas and an understanding of the European context to lead this successfully. Other Board members may be asked to contribute to grant and funding applications to support this role. All members may be asked to represent ROTOS at meetings with other organisations, or to speak on behalf of ROTOS at conferences, events, and webinars.
