Converis Research Information System

The Research Office, in partnership with Human Resources, has purchased Converis to track aspects of research management.  When complete, the system will be used to record ethics applications to both the REB and PCAC, and to keep information about all research grants and contracts (to be called projects) in one database.  The system will allow for easy identification of ethics applications related to funded projects and will increase efficiency of interactions between the Research Office and Research Financial Analysts.

This project has been partially funded by the Research Support Fund awarded by the Government of Canada to assist with the indirect costs of research.

Converis For Research Ethics:

Application to the Research Ethics board are now submitted and reviewed through Converis.  The PDF REB application form is no longer accepted.

For manuals, guidance documents, further details, and updates regarding the Converis Research Ethics Module please see: Research Ethics Forms

The system is now being used by the Research Office and Research Financial Analysts to record new grants and projects. As a result of this, you might notice a slight difference in the appearance of emails related to new FOAPALs created, closure of FOAPALs, and new funding opportunities. Part of the system has been configured to automate some emails and to mimic existing formats.

We are continuing to develop other functionalities. Future phases will include renewal and amendment processes for the REB, and the ability for researchers to view their applications and projects in the system. We will keep the campus updated on these initiatives as they develop further.
