Researcher Information Services (RISe)

RISe is an online research administration tool that aids researchers and administrators to manage applications online via a completely transparent process that can be tracked through to approval, certification or awarding of funds. As a collaborative online tool, RISe allows researchers to interact with their research teams, administrators, and reviewers; the system also sends auto-notifications and reminders to individuals regarding the status of their project or application.

Visit the RISe website for details on how to logon and access RISe.
