Research Management System

ECU Research Management System (ECURMS) is the University’s research grants administration system, and supports all aspects of the application and award processes of externally-funded and centrally administered internal research grants.

ECURMS provides the facility for researchers to submit internal expressions of interest (EOIs), which will alert their School Dean and Research Services of their intention to submit a research grant application. The system also assists Research Services in the management of awarded research grants.

The data held in ECURMS allows Research Services to report on research grant activity, and reports drawn from the data are provided to areas across the University.


You can access ECURMS from the Staff Portal.

Access is automatically granted to all staff.

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

Selecting ‘Research Management System’ from the menu will take you to the ECURMS homepage.


Research Services have prepared a collection of useful cheat sheets, guides and workflow documents designed to assist staff interacting with the ECURMS.

These resources are updated regularly, staff are advised via the Research Weekly newsletter of the latest updates.


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