Electronic Research Administration at NIU (InfoEd)

Learn more about accessing SPA standard reports

NIU utilizes an electronic Research Administration (eRA), commonly known as InfoEd, to enter, track, and monitor all facets of research at NIU. Please note that InfoEd relies on pop-ups, so you may need to turn off your pop-up blocker (especially when using Chrome). Units and processes on campus that are utilizing the eRA include:

  • Sponsored Programs Administration
  • Finding funding opportunities utilizing the SPIN funding database
  • Proposal development and management
  • Internal proposal approval routing
  • Proposal reporting
  • Research Compliance, Integrity and Safety
  • Human subjects development
  • Laboratory animal development
  • Laboratory safety and hazardous material management
  • Innovation and technology management

The eRA at NIU is hosted by InfoEd Global, an expert in research administration and partner with NIU for over 10 years.
