When looking at grants management and research management system vendors, one might believe that the differences between grants and research management are strictly semantic.
Both systems are used to manage the funding lifecycle, which begins with the establishment of an award and often ends with a post-award report. Whether an organization uses a very simple approach, or conversely, a very sophisticated method for each type, there are indeed fundamental differences between the two systems.
Integration with academic systems as well as third party databases like Pubmed, are frequently needed in research management systems and not grants management systems.
