Starting Use of the Program
The reporting software is available to the researcher on a computer connected to the HUS network at https://HiRo.hus.fi. A separate login is not required, as the program recognizes the researcher through HUS authentication.

When the program opens, the Researcher’s Projects tab appears, showing a list of all the researcher’s projects with the current balances at the top of the page. Project financials are updated in the program on a monthly basis on the 15th of each month.
