EU PROJECT TIMESHEETS
During this meeting we will discuss EU research project timesheets and working towards a new, University-wide, online tool for improving this process.
We will explore a better approach to producing timesheets so that they fulfil the funder's requirements yet are also useable and manageable for the academics and administrators who have to complete them. We will first feed in the group’s views on how to build better timesheets in theory and then work with a member of IT services to start exploring a new, practical electronic timesheet system. In this way we can begin to build something that works for projects and is sustainable for staff.
