Awards Management Module


Awards Management - Research Project data in Pure

Upon logging on to Pure you can see a new tab “Award Management” which houses sub-sections that relate to;

  • Research Applications
  • Awards
  • Projects
  • Milestones
  • Ethical Reviews


The Awards Management module archives all research grant application data and will, in due course, provide an online internal approvals process. R&E currently administer all of the application & award data within Pure including adding new applications (when approved/submitted) and new awards (upon announcement by Finance).

Basic information of research grant applications dating back to 2012/13 has been retrospectively added to Pure and is available to Heads of Departments and departmental Directors of Research. 


Awards relate to successful grant applications. Information on current research grants awarded from 2006 onwards has been uploaded into Pure and Research and Enterprise will update Award information periodically with basic information; funder, period, budget etc (data available on the grant announcement) on your behalf. Only R&E can currently add new Awards to ensure all data is consistent with grant announcements and not duplicated.


Projects can be funded or ‘non-funded’ projects so will include all awards and also offers an option for users to add details of their research projects that aren’t necessarily linked to external funding.

All successful grant application are set up as both an Award and a Project (R&E will do this initial set-up). Whilst awards contain the basic administrative and financial data of the grant the Project section has greater details of that project and enables linkages between that project and its related outputs, impact, activities and further applications. Please make sure that you link your projects with any research outputs or activities that resulted from the project, this will ensure that outcomes of the project can be easily identified and reported to the funding bodies.

You will find further guidance related projects under the research grant data section in Pure support .


Milestones can be used to set reminders for project,e.g. reporting dates, however currently this element of the module is not active.
