CC Grant Tracker selected by Kidney Research UK

We are pleased to announce that Kidney Research UK have implemented CC Grant Tracker, initially launching their Fellowship and Studentship schemes on the system in August 2015 with their remaining Research Grants being available when the rounds open later in the year. As the largest funder dedicated to research into the causes and prevention of kidney disease, Kidney Research UK required a proven online solution able to manage the requirements of their thorough review process.

Elaine Davies, Director of Research Operations at the charity stated:

“The charity undertook a robust tendering process before deciding to purchase and implement the CC Grant Tracker as the Grants Management System which meets our business needs now and also provides us with capacity for future growth. The teams, both internally in the charity and CC Technology’s Project Team, continue to enjoy working together and we look forward to a long-term successful working relationship.”

CC Technology’s Managing Director, Dave Allan, commented:

“We have enjoyed working with Kidney Research UK throughout the elaboration and implementation phases and the team are all looking forward to delivering the rest of the project and the subsequent on-going support. The selection of CC Grant Tracker from yet another AMRC member further positions CC Technology as the leading supplier of research grant management systems in Europe.”

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.

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.
