CC Grant Tracker chosen by THIS Institute

Last week marked the official launch of The Health Improvement Studies Institute (THIS Institute). Co-created by two exceptional organisations – the University of Cambridge and the Health Foundation – THIS Institute is founded on the guiding principle that efforts to improve care should be based on the highest quality evidence.

THIS Institute will be opening a series of fellowship competitions to offer individuals the opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills necessary for the systematic study of improvement, as well as starting large-scale applied research programmes that tackle questions that really matter to NHS patients and staff and that make creative use of citizen science methods.

CC Technology is proud to announce that THIS Institute has selected CC Grant Tracker as the system to support their administration and management of their fellowship awards and grants programmes.

Martin Ferry, Strategy Director, – “There has been a significant effort from both parties to make this happen and the team at CC Technology are all thrilled to see the institute launch with our system. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with THIS Institute.”

Kerry Johnson, Fellowship and Operations Manager added ““We are really pleased to be working alongside CC Technology to deliver our grant management system and look forward to using the online system. The first stage was ready to use very quickly, in time for our tight deadline, which was vital for us.”

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.
