Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) March 12, 2012
Texas A&M University Corpus Christi (TAMUCC) has chosen In4Grants™ from InfoReady Corporation to support the university’s strategic goal to significantly increase and support research, scholarship and creative activity.
With specific strategic performance targets to increase research expenditures by more than 50 percent ($30 million by 2015), increase proposals submitted by 10 percent, encourage and support interdisciplinary and collaborative research and submissions of interdisciplinary proposals, TAMUCC needed effective tools to support faculty and staff to meet these goals. By selecting In4Grants software from InfoReady Corporation, TAMUCC has given access to 250 users, including faculty, researchers and collaborators from partnering institutions. Using In4Grants, these users can quickly find grant funding opportunities, research commercialization awards and federal contracts from multiple federal agencies, foundations and other sources in one Web-based software tool. The users can then set up In4Grants information collaboration workspaces for internal and interdisciplinary proposal development and research using familiar social media tools.
“We have pretty aggressive goals and In4Grants is a powerful platform that gives us the tools we need to meet our strategic goals. We also get the added benefit that all activity and progress is performed and tracked in one place for future review and reporting,” said Ron George, Research Development Officer at TAMUCC.
Bhushan Kulkarni, CEO of InfoReady Corporation, added, “We are excited that Texas A&M University Corpus Christi chose In4Grants to help them achieve their goals and become a valuable new member in the In4Grants family. Our ability to meet the needs of the market is driven by institutions like them, who give us the insight and direction to grow and improve our product.”
