Take a closer look at the PERIS™ project…    With University of Pittsburgh Office of Research

December 7, 2017 │12:00 – 1:00 PM │102 Benedum Hall

Launched in October 2016, the PERIS™ project is a university-wide initiative to develop an electronic research management solution that streamlines administrative workflow, enhances data collection and processing transparency, and bolsters communication and partnership for the research community.  There are three distinct and overlapping phases to the project, which is slated for completion by Summer 2018.

Phase 1 of this project established MyFunding, an electronic module of the PERIS™ portal for creating, routing, and submitting external research proposals. Training for MyFunding was initiated in September 2017 with rollout in November 2017.

Phase 2 of the PERIS™ project kicked off in August 2017. This phase implements sponsor project award processing, compliance integration, and an interface between the Office of Research and the Research and Cost Accounting system.

Phase 3 will follow in 2018, creating a Principal Investigator (PI) dashboard/research manager to manage and track compliance, training, and research administration functions.    

To learn more about the PERIS™ project, attend this Lunch and Learn on December 7.
