Funding Updates:


ARC Discovery Projects are now open in RMS. If you are looking to include an MQ funded MQRES-PhD, please ensure you have completed a skeleton record in PURE with the scholarship section filled in. You can press the submit button if you like (and ignore the part about attaching a draft). Or just email us to let us know the record is in the system.

MQRIS Small (RIBG) Grants are being assessed. Results should be available before the end of 2017.



Please refer to the Staff Portal.

From Monday 30 October Researchers will be able to add the following to their profiles in the Pure RMS:

  • Activities
  • Equipment
  • Events
  • Impacts
  • Patents
  • Press/Media

NOTE: Of the above, only Patents will have a workflow approval switched on. Patents will have the usual Research Outputs workflow via the Library for validation. QRGs and FAQs will be made available via the WIKI.
