Learn about the Research Activity Hub (RAH), a next generation analytical platform that helps drive data driven decision making as it relates to sponsored research administration.

About the Research Activity Hub

Supporting blended research reporting and analysis, the Research Activity Hub (RAH) is a central repository for UC San Diego enterprise system data as it relates to UC San Diego sponsored research activity across relevant systems.

The Research Activity Hub supports the analysis of sponsored projects including pre and post award. The primary data source for RAH is Kuali Research. Major operational reports built on RAH include current awards and pending proposals, award obligations by totals per fiscal year, and quarterly award snapshots among others. We’ve partnered closely with OCGA to continue to enhance RAH. Recent enhancements to RAH include a new subaward view and subaward invoice view. Next up is the addition of Kuali IRB and COI data to support compliance reporting.
