The Brain Tumour Charity goes LIVE with CC Grant Tracker

Last week officially marked the Go-Live of our latest new customer The Brain Tumour Charity.

The Brain Tumour Charity, recently awarded “Third Sector Charity of the Year”, are determined to increase survival and reduce the effect that brain tumours have on quality of life. They are funding clinical trials and novel methods of drug development to help drugs get to the clinic. To date they have committed over £35.6 million into research with the hope that they will have a real impact on the brain tumour community.

CC Grant Tracker was selected to replace the existing system used by The Brain Tumour Charity following an extensive trial of the system. Having been selected to supply the charities new grants management system in June of this year we were delighted to see their CC Grant Tracker environment go-live last week.

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.

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.
