Research Information System (RIS) – full Faculty roll-out scheduled

The launch of ‘Work Package A’ of RIS in the Faculty of Engineering has progressed sufficiently so that the Faculty-by-Faculty roll out will now begin.

To date around 200 research grant proposals have been input into RIS and although a number of small issues were identified during the pilot we are now able to progress to the next stage of implementation. Thanks to colleagues in Engineering who have supported the pilot.

The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences will be the next faculty to switch over to RIS on Monday 8 May, followed shortly afterwards by the Faculties of Social Sciences, Arts and Sciences. The pilot in the Engineering Faculty has shown that the roll out of RIS will be made easier if as many academic staff as possible register to use the RIS system.

In preparation for the planned roll out within each faculty all academic staff should register as soon as possible to gain access to the RIS system. You can do this by participating in the RIS learning module on Moodle, reading the Terms and Conditions on this module for using the RIS system and then confirming your acceptance of them. There are also some tutorial videos on this site about how to use RIS.

The planned dates for the roll out of Work Package A of RIS in each faculty are as follows:

  • The roll out in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences will be split into three separate phases.
  1. School of Medicine – Monday 8 May
  2. School of Life Sciences – Monday 15 May
  3. Schools of Heath Sciences and Veterinary Sciences – Monday 22 May
  • Faculty of Science – Monday 5th June.
  • Faculties of Arts and Social Sciences – Monday 12th June

Further guidance and information about the detailed arrangements within each faculty will be sent out by the appropriate Faculty RIS Co-ordinator in advance of these launch dates.
