Grant funding


As the Funder Forum approaches, excitement is in the air, and we know you’re eagerly looking forward to what promises to be an inspiring and collaborative experience. Day 1 is designed exclusively for ProposalCentral Customers, with a special focus on idea exchange, brainstorming, and fine-tuning the roadmap. Here’s what you can expect from this unique gathering.


A Warm Welcome and Fresh Ideas

After a quick registration and a morning coffee, you’ll be welcomed into a community of like-minded professionals all driven by the same goal: improving grant funding practices. The welcome session will introduce you to the theme of the day: collaboration. The first collaborative session, which spans an entire hour, offers a chance to dive into ProposalCentral’s features, exploring everything from IP Reporting to Crossref and ORCID. Expect dynamic conversations and fresh insights. 


Engaging with New Features

Next up, Altum will present new features and invite your input on identifying gaps or wish list items. This is your chance to voice your opinions and see how they shape the future of ProposalCentral. Whether you’re interested in CRM integrations or specialized PC training, the concurrent sessions offer choices to align with your interests.


A Thoughtful Lunch

Lunchtime offers more than just nourishment for your body; it’s a chance to nourish your professional connections. Discuss the morning’s insights with fellow attendees, share your thoughts, and perhaps even spark a new collaboration.


Afternoon Innovations

The afternoon kicks off with a look at Post Award features, again with the opportunity to contribute your expertise. A special session on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) will address how these vital initiatives are being handled and how ProposalCentral can support Grant Managers.


Closing with Roadmap and Networking

Day 1 culminates with a roadmap and wish list session, followed by a relaxing cocktail networking reception. The roadmap discussion allows you to contribute to the future of ProposalCentral, and the reception offers a chance to unwind and reflect on the day’s successes with new and old friends alike.


Come Ready to Collaborate

Day 1 of the Funder Forum is more than just a series of sessions. It’s a collaborative journey where your insights, ideas, and expertise are vital. Come ready to engage, share, and shape the future.
