RKES Portal

main content

The RKES Portal is our one stop shop for University staff and researchers to find the relevant help and resources for their research and knowledge exchange activities. 


This includes:

Funding Journey

Here you can Find Funding and get help with things like Costing and Pricing, Consultancy, Contracts and Evaluation.

Connecting & Engaging

In this section you'll find information on Knowledge Exchange, Public Engagement and Strategic Theme Engagement.

Research Excellence with Impact

This is for information on things like Ethics, Research Audits and The Research Excellence Framework (REF).

Support & Training

Find out more about Postgraduate Support, as well as how to use the University's databases (e.g. Pure), or access Advice for Researchers and Public Engagement Training.


Go to the latest guidance, support and information on the RKES Portal.

Problems logging on?

If you experience difficulties logging on to the Portal, refer to these helpful tips. For technical assistance with your user settings or PC set up, please contact the IT Help Desk. The Portal runs on Microsoft's SharePoint platform so performs better with an Internet Explorer browser.
