New NIH eRA Website - coming soon!

Posted on November 18, 2013 at 11:22am

eRA Information: Coming Soon the ALL NEW Electronic Research Administration Web Site

Monday, November 18, 2013

It has been six months since we started the redesign of the Electronic Research Administration (eRA) web site. We are excited to announce that on Thursday, November 21, we will launch the new design!

[Screenshots/images can not display in the OSP Announcements Tool. Please see the NIH website for a view of the new site.]

The new design is more graphical, focusing on processes.  The less text heavy approach is designed to make the pages easier to navigate, and less overwhelming. 

With the idea of making the site as useful as possible, applicant steps are broken down into major chunks and each chunk includes:

  • Links to the specific section of the online help, with step-by-step information on basic tasks
  • Policy links, where appropriate.
  • Communication resources, from fliers to presentations to FAQs.

The URL for the home page of the site ( will remain the same as will most other URLs, so as not to inconvenience you.


We will welcome your feedback on the design once we launch. Suggestions for specific improvements are particularly welcome. Please send any comments about the impending change

We look forward to hearing from you.
