Featured FAQ Answer

What is ROMEO?

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.
