Electronic Research Administration

Since many federal agencies and other sponsors have mandated the electronic submission of proposals, electronic research administration (ERA) is being developed for the University of Illinois system. The number of federal agencies requiring electronic submission through Grants.gov is expected to increase rapidly as a result of a congressional mandate requiring agencies to move from paper to electronic systems. Non-federal organizations also continue to move toward electronic systems in an effort to streamline the proposal process.

Request NSF, NIH, or Grants.gov account.

Built on Kuali Coeus, the START myResearch portal is available to view current and pending proposals.  The pre-award electronic submission tool, START myProposals, is being developed.  If you or your unit are interested in participating in the pilot program in Fall 2019, please contact us.

The former UI eRA (InfoEd software suite) is no longer in operation.
