What's on

Logging your impact on PURE

PURE is the University's Current Research Information System (CRIS). Information held in PURE relates to research staff and their publications, projects and activities information. PURE allows for relationships and associations to be created between research inputs and outputs, providing a broad picture of research activity at the individual, research unit, School, College, and University levels.
