About gateway to research

The gateway to research will support research at Waterloo by:

  • reducing the administrative burden and improving reporting functionality,
  • producing more accurate reflections of researcher accomplishments through auto populated publications on researcher profiles,
  • enhancing opportunities for collaboration,
  • offering capability to search and apply for funding opportunities, and delivering notifications for deadlines and opportunities through Pure,
  • making it easier to submit and track ethics applications with features such as electronic signature approvals and efficient smart forms using Kuali,
  • capturing a comprehensive view of intellectual property across the University to support compliance and reporting requirements using the electronic Intellectual Property and Commercialization Activity Disclosure form.
