The Research Office has an effort underway, the Research Portal Initiative, to improve process and automation supporting research compliance and administration. A critical component of this initiative is to select modernized software that was developed with an R1 research institution focus, is easy to use and provides advanced integration and data services.
A request for proposal was posted in early April. A requirement of the finalists is an on-campus presentation focused on the faculty and the research community. Your feedback regarding the finalists is valuable to the long-term success of research at WVU, therefore we invite you to learn more about the proposed systems and attend an on-campus presentation.
We anticipate two-to-three finalists, and presentations will last 90 minutes with a 30-minute question-and-answer session. We will send you a survey to provide feedback after the presentations.
The presentations will be held at the Erickson Alumni Center’s Ruby Grand Hall and will require in-person attendance on June 8, 13 and 14 from 1-3 p.m.
