RESEARCH PORTAL PROJECT

A centralized site administered by OVPR that can assist users throughout the university to get answers to questions and to access information systems that will assist them in doing their work.

From identification of grant opportunities, to the proposal process, to managing active grants, the portal will allow the user to see all stages of the research process. It will also provide centralized access to research administrative information and improve the researcher and research community experience in completing research administrative tasks.

Project Goals

  • A single platform and consolidated/centralized window to research dashboards, systems, and administrative processes
  • Improved access to research administrative systems and the consolidation and presentation of information through dashboards that collect, combine, and manipulate data from proposals, awards, compliance disclosures, etc.
  • Provide a customized experience, including dashboard content, for each researcher
  • Single sign-on (SSO) access to other Penn systems
  • Roadmap for future releases to include information from various research administrative systems, with the first major release to minimally include COI and GFM integrations
