PERA information session now online: What the new system will mean for the research enterprise

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — The Office of Research recently hosted four information sessions on the Purdue Excellence in Research Administration, or PERA, software system. More than 680 members of the research enterprise attended. Each session’s purpose was to provide a deeper understanding of why we are implementing PERA now and what the system will mean to users when the initial modules roll out this fall.

Along with the presentation, each session also included questions from attendees. For those who could not attend the live sessions, a video including the PERA presentation and consolidated Q&A are available online.
