GW4 Portal

GW4 Portal is a secure intranet platform designed to facilitate collaboration across the four universities: Bath, Bristol, Cardiff, and Exeter.

Staff and postgraduate students at GW4 institutions can share documents securely, discuss projects in real-time, exchange best practice tips on research collaboration, and share internal news and events. The GW4 Portal can also be used to work together with external collaborators.
