Information about funded research projects are loaded automatically into Pure from University Finance systems. Research grants with an R* finance code only with a start date on or after 2002 have been loaded into Pure and current projects are continuously added.
How to make your projects visible on the EBR website and attached to your profile
- Is the project you are part of an “R…” coded project?
- If you are the PI your project record will be within your Projects section on your Pure profile – you can go to 3
If you are not the PI, ask the PI, local Pure editor or Pure Support
( firstname.lastname@example.org or Hilary.Browne@bristol.ac.uk ) to add you to the project - you will then have editing access to the records and can go to 3
- Enhance the information on your project - add description, links and co-investigators, then go to 4
Complete as many fields as possible, and add colleagues' names to the Related project participants. Once a person has been added to a project as a participant, they will then be able to edit the details of that project.
- Add Relations– ie create links between the project and other content in Pure, for example, linking research outputs to the project. See the Adding relations guide
- Make the project visible on the website:

Remember to when you have finished editing the project.
Non-R projects - add your own
You can add non-R (labelled “non-funded” in Pure) projects to the Explore Bristol Research website alongside other projects with no discernible difference between them and "R…” projects as the "non-funded" label is not displayed on the website.
Click the plus sign which appears when you hover over the projects link on the left hand side in Pure. A new window will open where you can add details about your non-funded project.
- Why are only R* - coded projects brought in from Finance?
- Some relevant projects may not currently exist in Pure because the EL2 code begins with something other than R* in the University finance systems. In time we intend to add additional types of projects into Pure, for example studentships and consultancy, but due to issues with the way these types of accounts are stored it is currently not possible to automatically bring them into Pure. We will work with Finance Services to look into the feasibility of bringing these types of accounts into Pure in the future. You can add any non- or internally-funded project to Pure - see point 6 above.
- What do I do if funded project information is incorrect in Pure?
- Information on funded projects which comes from University finance systems is not editable in Pure. If any information is incorrect it must be updated in the finance systems. Please either contact Finance directly (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/finance/contacts/#faculty ) or contact us and we will liaise with Finance on your behalf.
- Why doesn’t the project spend breakdown in Pure match that of Business Objects?
- Pure is not the place for financial management of your research project. Pure does include some basic information about project spend but for accurate, up-to-date information please use your Business Objects reports supplied by Finance Services - Go to Financial Reporting with Business Objects.
- Why are some selected projects visible on Explore Bristol Research, sometimes with only very basic information attached to them?
- Due to open access agreements, UK Research Council projects have been made visible on Explore Bristol Research. For other projects, the default visibility setting for projects is Sensitive - only visible to users logged into Pure. PIs and other users who have the PI's permission can make other projects visible if appropriate.
Adding additional information to funded projects
The basic details about funded research projects will be generated from information already held in University Finance systems. Additional information can be added to these projects in Pure in order to promote and record a better picture of the research that is being carried out.
Principal Investigators will have access to view and edit their funded projects but you can have access too if you have your name added to it. First find and retrieve your project see steps 1 to 6 above) then select the project that you wish to edit
- Description: Descriptive text including lay descriptions and key findings
- Project website: links
- Participants: Additional project participants, e.g. researchers, co-investigators, can be added to the project in Pure. Once a person has been added to a project as a participant, they are able to edit the details of that project. Select Add person... to add an internal or external person and select their role on the project from a drop down list. Add contributing/collaborating organisations by selecting Add organisation....
- Add Relations: Create links between the project and other content in Pure, for example, linking research outputs to the project. See Relations guide
