This page contains upcoming developments within research management reporting:

December 2020 - ICA / OBIEE 12c Upgrade

During December the underlying dashboard technology will be upgraded to OBIEE 12c. This is to ensure the reports no longer use Flash, which is no longer supported at the end of the year for security reasons.

Competitor analysis

We are investigating implementation of competitor analysis information from an external source for benchmarking and collaborative purposes.

Collaborator / Expert Identifier

Using public data, a means to identify which academics across the UK have received the most public funding associated with a specific term or keyword to assist academics in finding potential collaborators is being developed. Details of their publicly funded awards, including abstracts, would be available to determine if the academic is appropriate. Feedback on if this would be a useful tool and which staff groups would most benefit from this would be greatly appreciated. Please email

Spend reports in BIEE

We are investigating the feasibility of producing regular spend reports as per Report2Web in a more accessible and user friendly format. This would allow greater ease in customising reports and could reduce costs.
