To use the NIH eRA Commons, all PIs
submitting to NIH will need an active account with a user name and
password. To activate your account, the following information is needed:
- First name, middle initial, and last name
- University e-mail address
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 612.624.5599 and reference NIH eRA Commons. You will be referred to a SPA staff member who will create your account while you are on the phone.
This process takes only a couple of minutes.
Once your eRA Commons account has been setup,
NIH will send you an e-mail, usually immediately or within three days with your user name
and a temporary password.
NIH has notified us that this registration process needs to be completed
at least 2-4 days prior to the submittal date of any Grants.gov submission.
If you have not registered, we suggest you do so immediately.
