Staff news

Staff input wanted

Staff members are invited to contribute their views about pre- and post-award research processes and systems at a series of town hall meetings.

The events will be run by Edinburgh Research and Innovation (ERI) and Information Services (IS).

Maximum efficiency

ERI, with project management support from IS, has launched a project to review, with a view to replacing, the InfoEd Research Management & Administration System (RMAS).

RMAS is used to manage the pre-award process on behalf of the University.

The system records details of all applications submitted to, and awards secured from, research funders, and drives the costing tool that ERI staff use.

The new project will evaluate the whole pre- and post-award process to ensure maximum efficiency gains.

Stakeholder views

Research funding is a key income stream for the University and there are now many stakeholder communities involved with it.

It is important that the needs and requirements of these communities are taken into account at the business-planning phase of this project.

The town hall meetings will provide an opportunity for staff to find out more about the project and contribute their views.

Meeting details

There will be five events held across five different University sites throughout January.

Booking is required.
