​Research Management Project Finalist

UK IT Industry Awards 2017


This month the Research Management System project will be named a finalist in the BCS & Computing UK IT Industry Awards 2017, under the Best “Not for Profit” Sector IT Project category.



About the Project


Last year Andrew McKendrick successfully managed this project, which produced a system that supporting all stages of research.


For individuals this reaches from approval, applying for funding, managing awarded funds and milestones, to managing research activities and outcomes, as well as supporting the promotion of individuals and their research.


For the University as a whole it provides a much-needed window into our research.


Now we understand research activity easily, where previously the task of collating scattered, scant and unformatted information was manual and time consuming.


About the Award


The BCS & Computing UK IT Industry Awards are a platform for the entire IT profession to celebrate best practice, innovation and excellence.


Andrew and one of our senior academics who uses the research management system are travelling to a judging day later in the year to present the project and be assessed against the other finalists.


Paul Fletcher, Group CEO, BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, says:


“Congratulations to everyone who’s been shortlisted, they clearly demonstrate the highest levels of excellence and innovation across today’s IT sector.


These awards showcase some of the brightest and best in our industry, and it is a significant achievement to be shortlisted.”


The finalists are due to be announced this week in Computing magazine, on twitter through @Computing_news and through @BCS.
