Are you familiar with the new NIH Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR)? The RPPR is a Federal-wide initiative to standardize reporting by creating a uniform format for all interim reporting of research and research-related activities. The result of this initiative is the RPPR Final Format.
As of October 19, all grantee institutions will have access to the new NIH RPPR for most Streamlined Non-competing Award Process (SNAP) and fellowship awards. NIH expects to require the new RPPR format for all grantees with SNAP and fellowship awards in the spring of 2013. The RPPR webpage includes a full list of Activity Codes for which the RPPR format will be available in October.
The NIH Office of Extramural Research will host a training webinar on the use of the new NIH RPPR eRA module on October 17 from 1:30-3:00pm. Space is limited to 1,000 log-ins, so register today at https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/647997446. If you are unable to attend the webinar, the event recording will be made available at a later date.
