British Heart Foundation selects CC Grant Tracker

CC Technology is pleased to announce that, following a tender process, CC Grant Tracker has been selected by the British Heart Foundation (BHF) to deliver an online grants management system for their Prevention and Care (P&C) programmes.

The BHF is the UK’s number one largest funder of heart research to help fight against coronary heart disease – the UK’s single biggest killer. Their Prevention and Care activity covers a range of initiatives ranging from awarding grants to local groups, to supporting specialist health professionals and placing life-saving defibrillators in key sites around the UK.

The aim of the project with CC Technology is to deliver a single workflow driven platform for the BHF’s Prevention and Care activity to receive, process, track, administer and report on grant/award applications in an automated manner. This will result in a greater level of customer service to applicants as well as reduce the manual process workload on team members.

Dave Allan, Managing Director of CC Technology, commented

“This level of endorsement from one of the leading Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) is further evidence that CC Technology has the most extensive Grants Management Solution available. We look forward to working with the BHF and helping them in attaining their mission to win the fight against cardiovascular disease.”

Odette McFarlane, Business Project Manager of BHF said

“We are really pleased to have selected CC Grant Tracker to manage our programmes and look forward to working with CCT to successfully deliver this project.”

With this partnership, we have the opportunity to position ourselves as
a world leader in the development of the scholarly ecosystem.

I cannot overstate how pleased we have been.
We have to have confidence to work with a partner
for at least 5 years on a project of this size.

The University measures the individual research activity of academic staff. This Measure of Research Activity (MoRA) requires the collection of publication data from faculty. Symplectic Elements supports this beautifully.

[Elements] will help to bring transparency to the richness of thought showcased within non-traditional publications, providing a more holistic representation of faculties’ scholarly work.

Caleb Smith, University of Michigan

Feedback to date has been extremely positive from all levels across the University, with individual academics and colleagues actively promoting the ease of use of the system.
