BRIC extranet

We have created a secure extranet for academic and industry members of BRIC to exchange useful information about the Club:

  • the extranet allows BBSRC staff to distribute confidential documents to the Club’s members
  • club members have the access rights to upload their own documents
  • the extranet has initially been populated with resources previously available through the Club portal
  • the extranet will be most useful when it is widely adopted and so all members are encouraged to use this resource
  • the information on the Club portal will remain available until further notice but will no longer be updated
  • extranet login details have been distributed – if you are a BRIC-funded researcher or student who does not currently have access please contact (stating your grant ID and position)

If you would like to upload any papers or patents onto the BRIC extranet or have articles of interest for the bulletin then please contact the BRIC team: or
