Huron Consulting Group, a provider of business consulting services, today announced that Case Western Reserve University has chosen the Company's Click(R) Portal software to manage sponsored program administration from proposal generation and submission through award management.
"Thousands of faculty and staff submit and renew more than 2,500 grant applications throughout the year," said Suzanne Rivera, associate vice president, Research, Case Western Reserve University. "With competition for funds increasing, we need a system that simplifies grant application processes for our researchers. We picked Huron's Click solution because it will help ensure accurate electronic submissions to funding sites such as Grants.gov, enable timely processing of extensions and renewals, and also support non-Federal research sponsors."
With approximately $420 million in annual external awards, Case Western is one of the largest research institutions in the United States. For more than a century, the institution has pioneered developments ranging from the discovery of cholesterol's role in blood vessel disease to the creation of the first heart-lung machine for open heart surgeries and the identification of the gene responsible for osteoarthritis.
