Macmillan Cancer Support Selects CC Grant Tracker

21st October 2018

This month marked Macmillan Cancer Support becoming the latest live users of CC Grant Tracker.

Macmillan is a leading UK charity providing support to people with cancer, from the moment of diagnosis, to help them live life as fully as they can.

Macmillan invests in research that increases understanding of the numbers, needs and experiences of people living with cancer, to help develop and influence better care and services.

CC Technology were chosen as the supplier for Macmillan’s new grants management system, the Macmillan Research Funding Gateway, following a comprehensive procurement process over the last few months. Following a smooth implementation, Macmillan launched the review element of their 2018 Research Grants Scheme last week and reviewers (both scientists and people living with cancer) are already successfully completing reviews through the Research Funding Gateway.

Meera Craston, Head of Evidence at Macmillan, commented “We are pleased to be working with CC Technology to deliver the Macmillan Research Funding Gateway.  This grants management system will streamline our research funding management processes, providing valuable time for our teams to focus on ensuring that Macmillan’s research investments maximise their potential for improving the lives of people with cancer.”
