The RSB office are excited to announce that the Funding Module of Gateway will be going live from Friday, 15th September. This new system will replace the RGA forms and the need for paper sign off. From the 15th anyone developing or submitting an application for research or enterprise funding will be able to get their application signed off in Gateway.
You’ll be happy to know that the new system will deliver a number of improvements:-
- Better reporting of projects
- Improved visibility of workloads, deadlines and outstanding tasks
- Increased accuracy in fund reporting
- Ability to request review of proposals by peers, RSB or others at a touch of a button.
To help staff in the introduction of this new funding module, a Drop-In Session will take place on Monday, 18th September from 10am-2pm in the Top Lodge Conservatory – bring your laptop or phone and the RSB team will be available to talk you through this new process. If you prefer a 1:1 or group session, please contact RSB@northampton.ac.uk and we will be happy to come to you. Depending on demand, further drop-in sessions can be planned.
We are looking forward to this new system going live and believe it will provide a more efficient way of managing research funding.
An excellent article written by a previous colleague of mine from the University of Strathclyde.
Whilst this refers to PURE as the CRIS (Current Research Information System), the principals are the same, if you are at the University of Northampton, think NECTAR where it mentions PURE…(NECTAR is our repository, we don’t have a CRIS).
