The University of Bristol has recently announced the selection of Worktribe, a leading provider of higher education software for research and curriculum management, to help transform research management at the institution.
After a competitive tender process, Worktribe was selected as the best-in-class solution by the University to “provide a platform for the management of core structured data relating to the costing, application and subsequent award processes for research”. Implementation of Worktribe at the University of Bristol will begin this Autumn.
Worktribe’s cloud-based software will support researchers and administrators at the University of Bristol to collaborate on the development and approval of research bids online. Features include clear workflows from submission to approval, fEC compliant project costing, HR integration, file management, audit trail of actions and comments, reporting and data export for BI.
Commenting on the news, Worktribe COO James Brook said: “We’re delighted to partner with the University of Bristol and are looking forward to supporting and strengthening the institution’s world-class research with Worktribe. The University of Bristol is one of the UK’s top 10 universities and we’re confident that our software will underpin future growth and success. We’re also looking forward to welcoming such a respected university to our growing user group, to help shape our products now and in the future.”
Jon Hunt, University of Bristol’s Director of Research and Enterprise Development added: “We look forward to working with Worktribe to shape an innovative, flexible system that can keep up with the growing complexity of the research environment.”
The University of Bristol will join 33 other universities in the UK that already use Worktribe to manage their research and curriculum administration.
