Changes to the Research & Enterprise Database at BU

On 18th July 2011 BU’s internal database (RED, previously known as RAKE) which stores information on the university’s research and enterprise projects will move to a new platform.  You will not be able to access the system on the 18th of July while the changes are taking place.

Academic staff can access this database to review their own record of bidding and awarded projects which can be useful for appraisals.  If you would like further details on how to use the database, please contact me at the details below.

Although some things have moved around, the database is very similar to the old version and should be simpler to navigate through.  The database can be accessed using the same link as before .  Your login details are the same as your standard university login details.

If you have any queries please contact Susan Dowdle (, ext 61209).
