A change for the better – The University of Aberdeen switches to RESEARCHconnect

After 12 years of using a research funding information service that had become 'ever less cost-effective', The University of Aberdeen has switched to RESEARCHconnect in a move that the institution believes will provide it with timely funding information and excellent support.

Dr Andrew Phillips, Business Development Officer supporting the research work of the University, describes the institution's decision to subscribe to RESEARCHconnect and the benefits of the service:

"Our ideal provider was one that could deliver timely, accurate funding information, had a keen eye for product development, and offered excellent support before, during and after implementation – all in a way that made good economic sense for us.

"We expected to have to compromise on these requirements – but with RESEARCHconnect, we found exactly what we were looking for.

"Idox's support has continued beyond implementation into ensuring we get the best out of the service on an ongoing basis. That we have such a responsive and dedicated partner in Idox gives us confidence that our decision to invest in this service is justified."

Universities will be able to see how the service supports research funding strategy at the EARMA Annual Conference (Malta, 24-26 April), for which RESEARCHconnect returns as Gold Sponsor, and ARMA Annual Conference (Liverpool, 5-7 June). The RESEARCHconnect team looks forward to welcoming all those with an interest in enhancing their approach to research funding at these flagship events.
