Register your award

Grant Registration

In order to access the funds of your new research award, a research account must be set up. This is called grant registration. The grant registration process is completed online using the UCD Research Management System grants system known as RMS Grants. The online registration process can begin once the appropriate documentation is in place and authorised.

The UCD Grant Registration Team (GRT) will help you with registering your new award, transferring awards between institutions, and managing the review and signature of contracts.  Once the grant is registered you will receive notification of your account number (e.g. Rxxxxx, or Vxxxxx).  The following notes will provide guidance on the key areas of interest.
