World-Class Research Demands World-Class Support
As UT Austin researchers transform the research landscape in exciting, innovative, and impactful ways, the necessity for highly functional and integrated electronic awards management and compliance systems is critically important.
The Vice President for Research has committed substantial resources to the modernization of our electronic research administration and support systems in a multi-year, multi-phased project that will provide powerful tools to help reduce the administrative and regulatory burden on investigators so they can focus on what they do best: changing our world through research.
After thoroughly evaluating institutional research management needs, we conducted an exhaustive search for a solution to best meet our requirements for today and the decade ahead. In partnership with you, the UT Austin research community, and our development partners, we will implement an array of tools that will greatly improve communication, streamline the proposal and award creation process, and integrate sponsored funding management with Human Subjects, Animal Care, and Conflicts of Interest compliance.
We are proud to introduce the UT Research Management Suite.
