X5 - the costing and pricing tool for research projects is due to be upgraded in early October. The upgrade will include improvements to the interface, fixes to known bugs and enable us to remain supported by the supplier.  

For the upgrade to take place, there will be a few hours when X5 and other Research Office systems will be unavailable as follows - 

System Downtime on Thursday 8th October 2020

X5: 7am - 1pm

Research Dashboard: 7am – 1pm

ROO Portal: 7am – 11am 

Once X5 has been upgraded you will be able to log in as normal. Further details about the upgrade will be circulated later this month but if you have any immediate queries, please email
