CC Grant Tracker chosen by Fight for Sight

CC Technology are pleased to announce that Fight for Sight have chosen and subsequently implemented CC Grant Tracker as their new Grants Management System.

Fight for Sight is the leading eye research charity in the UK funding PhD studentships, fellowships and projects grants to address the prevention of sight loss and the development of new treatments.

Dr Caroline Schmutz, Fight for Sight’s Grants Officer, worked closely with CC Technology on the project and commented:

“I am really pleased to have the grants management system set up on schedule. The support from the team at CC Grant Tracker, especially Wan Fui Chan and Danielle Kelly, was incredible. They were always on the other end of the line to answer queries and steer us in the right direction to keep the project on target. I am looking forward to managing the grant programmes using this online grants management system”.

The project went ‘live’ on schedule in the middle of July with 3 of Fight for Sight’s funding streams. We now look forward to delivering the remaining streams whilst working with the Fight for Sight team to ensure that CC Grant Tracker continues to deliver benefits and efficiency gains.

CC Technology will have more announcements on project successes to follow in the coming months.

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.
