From 1st April 2018 we will no longer be using RESonline to create new projects.
During April we will be rolling out Worktribe to the School of Computing Science and Digital Media, School of Engineering and School of Pharmacy and Life Science.
In the meantime, email details of your new projects to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
