Dec. 7 training to address Grants.gov switch to Workspace

News for Researchers

November 28, 2017

Beginning Jan. 1, 2018, investigators are required to use Workspace to apply for federal grants in Grants.gov. This tool replaces the traditional PDF packages on Grants.gov.

To help University of Nebraska-Lincoln researchers prepare for the change, the Office of Research and Economic Development is hosting a viewing of the Grants.gov tutorial “Getting Started in Workspace” at 1:30 p.m. Dec. 7 in the Paul Research Center (formerly Whittier School), room 152. A Q&A session will follow. Faculty and staff involved in submitting grant proposals are encouraged to attend.

Workspace is designed to allow multiple users to simultaneously access and edit different forms within an application package and is similar to the FastLane and ASSIST tools offered by the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health.

Individual registration is required to use Workspace. Nebraska faculty and staff are urged to contact their pre-award coordinator in the Office of Sponsored Programs to register.

For more information and resources, read the Grants.gov blog, visit the Workspace overview, or watch a video about the transition.
