Call for Collaboration
Over the years we’ve tried to do everything we could to drive down the cost of eRA. We’ve offered products for far less than our competitors, put a fine pencil to the service related costs, we’ve offered our pre-award products for free, and finally tried to make a push to open source the entire platform.
All these efforts failed to gain any traction so we starting shutting down operations in the fall of last year which I felt was a tragedy. Why? Because we’d developed a platform I felt was better than anything on the market and now it just sits on a shelf.
This is a call to anyone out there who has an idea of how to make this work for the good of the research community. I’m open to any reasonable suggestions at this point. Please feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org of even to post your ideas on this page for discussion.
