New Edinburgh Research Explorer
Learn more about the University's research portal
The University of Edinburgh online research portal, Edinburgh Research Explorer, is being upgraded.
Edinburgh Research Explorer (ERE) is a hub for exploring the pioneering research that makes us a world-leading centre of excellence. It is the front-end public-facing display of the content in Pure, the current research information system (CRIS) used by the University of Edinburgh.
The new upgrade will see us move from the current custom portal to a cloud portal. This will not have any effect on research information held in Pure, but will make the information more accessible with a clean design and enhanced functionality.
