Welcome to ePaws! paws image

ePaws (Electronic Proposal Approval and Workflow System) is a simple proposal development tool used to prepare proposals for institutional review and approval.

ePaws was designed to reduce the administrative burden on investigators and college administrators, to provide a transparent tracking tool visible to all, and to collect the necessary approvals and certifications required by the funding agencies.

Here are a few of the advantages of using ePaws:

  • Using a single page web-based form, ePaws users can create proposals and submit for review and approval within minutes
  • Users across colleges can see summary information on research happening in other colleges on the ePaws Dashboard
  • With ePaws, Investigators now certify electronically!


To get started with ePaws, login with your myNEU username and password.epaws
