New Huron Grants and Agreements Software Live

The Office of Research released its new HURON Grants and Agreements software system at UCF over the weekend. Researchers will need to use the new system to submit grant proposals moving forward.

If you are having issues or need help with the new system today email


As a reminder, beginning tomorrow, a team of experts will have dedicated office hours to help faculty, staff and students using the system. Call it real-time training.

Those with questions can stop by room 381 of the Research One building on the main campus (4353 Scorpius St.) from 9-11 am and 2- 4 p.m. every Tuesday and Wednesday beginning the week of Oct. 21.  Or you can reach out by emailing or via Skype:,  (407) 823-0080 and conference ID: 2160149 and a team member will respond in real time.

Business systems analysts, Huron consultants and representatives from the Office of Research Proposal Support Office, Awards Management Office, and the Contracts Office, all of whom have been deeply involved in the design, testing and training of the HURON Grants and Agreement system will be responding to questions in real time.

We intend to hold these office hours as long as they are needed.  The sessions are intended for real-life, active proposal or award information that you are processing and either entering into the Huron Grants and Agreements system or managing through the award life cycle.

If you haven’t done so already, please review training resources available . Know that we are here to get your through the transition.

The HRS Grants and Agreements software upgrade is part of a multi-year university-wide project (UCF RISING), which will restructure research administration business processes and technologies. The goal is to enhance operations to support UCF’s research enterprise. All the systems together build a new and more robust research administration application ecosystem called the Huron Research Suite (HRS). We’ve been rolling out segments of the system since December 2018 when the Institution Review Board became the first group to go live with HRS. Those using non-Financial Agreements came onboard in July, and IACUC followed in September.

Please continue to watch for updates as the go-live date gets closer. We thank you for your support.
