Research Outcomes (ROS) Issues

March 13, 2012

Hello All,

Attached is a list of our key current issues in providing research outcomes to the RCUK Research Outcomes System (ROS).

We had a telephone conference with RCUK representatives  and we hope that a number of these will be resolved by improved communications planning.

I will revisit in a few weeks to see if some of these have been resolved.
