University College Dublin:
Awards Management in Elements

UCD has been using Symplectic Elements as a research management information system across the university since 2018, working closely with the Symplectic team during that time. In 2020, due to the nearing obsolescence of a custom-developed in-house solution, UCD was seeking a new grants system to manage their funding applications and projects. They chose to leverage the existing strong relationship to become the first university to pilot Elements’ new awards management functionality, extending their existing Elements platform to support the full research funding lifecycle.
