Research Portal

View the Research Portal

The Research Portal was developed to 1) provide researchers and research administrators with direct access to financial and administrative information related to sponsored awards as well as State and GT Foundation accounts and research integrity information, 2) provide the user with a complete "research portfolio," 3) assist in pulling segregated information into portlets in a clear, concise, and meaningful way, and 4) reduce the administrative burden for faculty.
