Research Funding Solution

Manage funding workflows seamlessly

The Research Funding Solution has launched!

For over 15 years, Symplectic Elements has empowered organisations to collect, analyse, showcase & report on all of their scholarly activities. This year, we’re expanding that scope by introducing a new suite of functionality to support research funding workflows, by bringing together research information management and research funding activities in one cloud-hosted system.

From proposal development to post-award activities the Research Funding Solution will offer functionality across the funding lifecycle, including:

Research Funding Solution 20

Funding opportunities: Promote upcoming funding opportunities to your researchers by uploading editable records that allow you to consolidate relevant funder & institutional information.

Proposal development: Our flexible proposal development functionality allows your researchers to develop their proposals and budgets collaboratively using eligibility & proposal forms tailored to your institution’s needs.

Research Funding Solution 19

Reviews and Approvals:  Ensure all proposals receive timely feedback and the necessary internal sign-offs using our configurable review & approval workflows.

Post-Award Management: Support researchers and administrators with managing milestones and reporting. Manage the transformation from application to project and offer functionality to allow maintenance of records and documents (eg. contracts and variations) about the project in one place.


Research Funding Solution 18

Reporting: Centralised, customisable reporting of institutional research activity and pipeline management including a wide variety of reporting options including data extracts, formatted reports and dashboards plus a specialised reporting database.

API & data migration tools: Our new RFS-specific API endpoint has been designed to support integrations & data feeds and our migrations tool will smooth the transition for implementing clients.

Developed in partnership with our client community, the
Research Funding Solution supports administrators and researchers alike.

The Elements Research Funding Solution offers flexible tools for fostering collaboration across the institution and
allows administrators to
more effectively support researchers throughout the application process.

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

Tim Cain, The Ohio Innovation Exchange (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.

Floris van der Leest, Victoria University, Melbourne, Australia

[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.
