Grants Part 2: Grant reports in Cognos

Tue 30 Jun 2020


This course will concentrate on how to use the Cognos reporting tool to help manage departmental research grants. These reports can be divided into three main categories:

Target audience

Your booking will remain 'provisional' until the following prerequisites have been completed;
