Altum unveiled a new and important initiative for the research community called Open (https://altum.wpengine.com). Open is a mindset and a belief that to truly create change, we must break down the walls and silos that have hindered innovation for centuries. Altum’s research management platform, ProposalCentral, and the power of the research analytics contained therein, is a true game changer for research organizations.
ProposalCentral is currently the fourth largest health and biomedical research funding platform in the world. Having this amount of data on one platform, from a diverse group of global research funders, provides our customers the opportunity to collaborate and analyze the research landscape more than any individual organization can do with a stand-alone system. The ability to collaborate earlier in the research life cycle to impact funding decisions, identify rising stars, and highlight important research trends before they are published is unprecedented and will truly impact the way research is funded for years to come.
