The MIT Coeus User Group is composed of people at MIT who are using Coeus Premium and/or CoeusLite, and includes both beginners and experts.
August 15th marked a significant milestone for MIT when all paper proposals transitioned to Coeus to facilitate the implementation of MIT’s new Conflict of Interest in Research policy.
If you could not attend earlier meetings, please plan to attend the next Coeus User Group meeting where we will review policy, system and process changes affecting all administrators and PIs during the proposal process and the integration with the new COI module.
The date of our next User Group meeting is TBD.
