The first phase of ResearchNow was successfully piloted in May with a group of around 20 participants, including researchers and support staff. The feedback received during the pilot was excellent, and will be used by the Project Team to improve both the training and support materials for ResearchNow and also the initial setup and configuration of the system.
A full pilot with College of Science and Engineering will start on 1 July, and the rest of the University will follow in August. This first launch in July/August will have a focus on Research Publications and Researcher profiles. A second phase of ResearchNow will start later in the year and will focus on pre and post grant award activities.
