Further European expansion with EDCTP

The CC Grant Tracker system has been chosen by the European & Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) to help manage the research grant funding of its second programme (2014-2024).

With offices in The Hague and Cape Town, EDCTP will be co-funded by the Participating States (14 European and 9 African countries) and the European Union under its new Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon 2020.

EDCTP aims to accelerate the development of new or improved drugs, vaccines, microbicides and diagnostics against HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, and neglected infectious diseases with a focus on phase II and III clinical trials in sub-Saharan Africa.

CC Technology’s Strategy Director, Martin Ferry, states that “EDCTP is another prestigious client for CC Technology in mainland Europe, backing up our status as a leading supplier of grants management software.”

In other news, CC Technology’s headcount increases with the addition of developers, a test manager and business analysts to help further advance the product, support and hosting services. Martin adds “We refuse to stand still when it comes to development. We continually review processes, collect and act upon customer satisfaction in order to always stay ahead of market trends.”

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.

Elements elegantly connected our multi-university system providing a
single source of truth throughout OIEx.

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.
