This program will deliver a modern, state-of-the-art, user-friendly research data system that will capture information pertaining to research applications, funding and research outputs (e.g., publications), in their totality. The new system will allow a more seamless approach to managing projects and tracking outcomes.
The program will be focused on IT components that, together, create an enterprise system providing a holistic view of research capacity and impact at Waterloo. This includes managing the administration, tracking and statistical reporting of research funding, certifications, intellectual property and commercialization, and publications.
