The University is about to start the pilot phase of the new Research Information System – RIS.
RIS will provide a structured mechanism to handle the preparation, approval and submission of grant applications and a user-friendly interface to enable more effective management of live projects. It will replace pFact and eStaff-profile with a single, modern and integrated tool.
The pilot phase is underway, which tests the functionality of the grant application and costing module prior to replacing pFact across all Faculties. In late February, the Engineering Faculty will transfer to RIS first, and other faculties will follow as soon as practical.
A series of roadshows hosted by Professor Kevin Shakesheff, Faculty Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Science and Sponsor of the RIS project, will be held to introduce the live RIS system. Staff can attend any of the following hour-long events without pre-booking:
Training for RIS will be provided via Moodle. This will be published prior to launch and researchers will be notified as soon as it’s available.
