About Pure

Research is a core part of the university of Bristol’s business, yet there was no single system in the University that provided a complete view of the research work being carried out. We therefore required a sophisticated system that would enable us to collect, organise and integrate data about our research activity and performance. A project was established to procure and implement a research information system for the University.

The project team gathered requirements for a research information system from a wide range of potential users. After going through an EU procurement process, it was agreed that the commercial system Pure offered the best fit to the University's requirements. Pure (PUblications and REsearch) is supplied by the Danish company Atira and is already used by many UK and EU universities, including a number of Russell Group institutions, for example University of London, Royal Holloway, Lancaster University, University of St Andrews.
