Live. Re-launched 27 May 2020

University Web Profile

Public profiles on the University website to promote the work of research and teaching academics, and other core staff. They are designed to increase the visibility of the University's expertise, make it easier for external audiences (e.g. students, media, industry etc) to find the people and information they require and help foster global collaboration opportunities. The profiles reuse data from other sources, including Pure and MyERP, as well as user inputted data and will replace the legacy People Profiler and Directory of Experts systems.
