From 17:00 GMT on Thursday 21st March to 08:30 GMT Tuesday 26th March 2019 the Je-S system will be unavailable.Working closely with UKRI, UK SBS will be renewing and moving the IT infrastructure that supports the grant administration services for UKRI and their Councils, known as Je-S.To complete this work, the Je-S system will be unavailable for a 4 day period, including the weekend. This is mainly an infrastructure change and there will be no effect on the functionality or look and feel of the Je-S system itself.There will be a change to the email address associated with Je-S which will become JeSHelp@je-s.ukri.org . After the 26th of March, any email to the Je-S service should be sent to JeSHelp@je-s.ukri.org but any mail using the current email will be redirected.
Like the Royal Society, the British Academy is transitioning to the new Flexi-Grant system over the summer. Currently British Academy uses e-Gap2 for both application and grant management.
Flexi-Grant will go live on 1st August 2017, when all existing grants on e-Gap2 will be migrated over to the new system. It will open for new user registrations on 9th August.
The main difference between Flexi-Grant and the existing e-Gap2 system is that references and Head of Department support statements must be in place before submission, rather than afterwards.
There will be a phased approach to adopting the new system for forthcoming grant schemes which is set out in the list below:
Mid-Career Fellowships call opens
Postdoctoral Fellowships call opens
BA/Leverhulme Small Research Grants (Round 2017-18) call opens
Tackling the UK’s International Challenges (tbc)
GCRF: Sustainable Development Programme (tbc)
BA/Leverhulme Senior Research Fellowships call opens
British Academy Rising Star Engagement Awards call opens
BA/Leverhulme Small Research Grants (Round 2018) call opens
