Worktribe at SOAS
SOAS has invested in the Worktribe Research Management system to develop and improve the services provided by the Research Office to staff applying for funding opportunities.
Worktribe is designed to help manage the institutional grant application process for externally funded research. It makes it easier for our academics and research staff to work closely with the Research Office to create comprehensive applications, which can then be reviewed and approved quickly and efficiently. Worktribe was introduced across the institution between May and August 2017. All applications for external research are now managed and approved through Worktribe.
