ROMEO Research Project Management Platform

ROMEO replaces the existing "Tracking Form" and online application system that has primarily been used for funded research activity and projects requiring Human Research Ethics Board (HREB) clearance. ROMEO helps faculty and their administrators maintain their compliance obligations for ethics approvals and research awards with enhanced project management capabilities through all stages of the project lifecycle. Faculty can login to one common interface to start a new grant application, check on the status of a HREB application or submit a final research report.

The ROMEO Research Portal Login can be found on our ROMEO information page. If it is your first time accessing ROMEO, please contact Melissa Deane (mdeane1@mtroyal.ca) or Christopher Graham (cjgraham@mtroyal.ca) to be added to the system.
For questions and assistance with ROMEO, please contact ORSCE manager, Melissa Deane, at 403.440.5081 or mdeane1@mtroyal.ca
