NSF access

IT offers easier and improved access to NSF's grant management services

TEXT SIZE

9:43 a.m., Feb. 9, 2012--Information Technologies now offers University of Delaware researchers a streamlined way to log in to National Science Foundation's Research.gov site for grant management services including FastLane.

NSF has partnered with the InCommon Federation to simplify how researchers access the information and services available at Research.gov. Because of the University’s InCommon membership, principal investigators and co-principal investigators can now log in to Research.gov using their UDelNet IDs and passwords.

Research Stories

Temperature extremes

A study has found that spatial patterns of extreme temperature anomalies — readings well above or below the mean — are warming faster than the overall average.

RCR training

Training in the Responsible Conduct of Research will be offered Feb. 5 in the Trabant University Center. Topics will range from ethical considerations for performing research to financial management, laboratory safety and many others.

Before the availability of this single sign-on service, researchers had to use a hard-to-remember NSF login ID to log in to Research.gov. In addition, they had to log in to the FastLane services separately. 

According to NSF, the new single sign-on will save researchers time because they won’t have to enter multiple credentials. In addition, a standardized log-in will improve security.

Step-by-step instructions for logging in to the NSF site with UDelNet credentials are available online
