Research Activity System

Research Activity System

The Research Activity System (RAS) is the University’s research outputs administration system, and supports the collection, review and reporting of research performance data.

Data is collected on an annual basis and validated by Research Services. This data is subsequently used for both internal and external reporting requirements.


The Research Activity System (RAS) is accessible by both Staff and Students. RAS can be accessed from the ECU Portal.

Log in to the Staff or Student Portal, and then navigate to the ‘Easy Logins’ menu of the left-hand side of the screen.

Selecting ‘Research Activity System’ from the menu will take you to the RAS homepage.


For assistance with using RAS, please contact your Research Administration Officer in the first instance. Their details can be found on the Support web page.

Technical issues should be directed to the IT Service Desk.

This can be for issues such as:

  • RAS is not responding,
  • you are unable to access RAS,
  • or RAS is presenting error messages.

You should lodge an enquiry with the IT Service Desk as soon as possible, via email: or telephone: (08) 6304 6000 or extension 6000.

So that we can assist you efficiently, please provide screenshots of the error (if applicable) and a detailed description of what you were doing when the issue occurred.
