CRAG Forum: ERA Wash-Up & Lessons Learnt – Thursday, 26 November 2009
Institutions have spent the majority of the year putting in place business processes and suitable systems to prepare their ERA Trial submissions. The trial is now complete and the full ERA experience is about to begin for 2010.
This Collaborative Research Administrators Group (CRAG) forum was an opportunity for people involved in the ‘practical issues’ of ERA submissions to meet and discuss their differing approaches to the trial, the difficulties they faced, the solutions put in place and the upcoming challenges for 2010.
