The ResearchNow Awards Management functionality, including research applications, awards and projects (that will be managed entirely by the RDS Grants and Tenders team) has gone live.
This release is focussed on awards management including the management of research applications (for research income from competitive grants or contract research), awards (research income awarded), and research projects. Researchers can be applicants, award holders, or project participants and will see their new applications, awards and projects on their Personal Overview screen when logging into ResearchNow. For the moment researchers won’t enter or edit these records, only the RDS Grants and Tenders team will have this access and they will work closely with researchers to create and edit this content.
At some stage, projects will begin to appear on the ResearchNow Portal in the same way as Research Outputs and other research content currently appears. The RDS Grants and Tenders team will work with researchers on making Projects public when they are ready.
