General Information on IGMS
How do I fill up the form? Are there any templates for the attachments?
Please refer to the document in the "guidelines and templates" section in the grant call page.
How do I update my CV?
You can do so by clicking on the "My profile" link under the "logoff" button.
What is a Lay abstract? Is it compulsory?
A Lay abstract is a summary of your research proposal in terms understandable by a layman. It is compulsory to allow administrators to understand the proposal better. It will not impact the scientific review of your proposal.
Must all the collaborators/co-PIs register with RITA?
Yes. This will allow their CVs to be included automatically in the submission and also allow them to view the proposal. Please enter their userids in the section for collaborators in the proposal.
I cannot upload my attachment.
Please check that your attachment is of the type txt, doc, pdf, zip or xls. It should be less than 4MB in size. Its name should not contain any special characters (e.g. &%!).
Can Visiting Scientists be Co-PIs of a project?
Please refer to the detailed guidelines for each call to verify the requirements, as they may differ for different programmes.
In general, PIs & Co-PIs have to be Singapore-based.
Why doesn't the total in the KPI sum up the numbers in the 1st 5 years?
This is to allow for values after year 5 to be incorporated into the total.
I found a bug in the system. How can I report a bug/error in RITA?
