F-CRIN is based on a model unique in France with 1) the pooling of resources and expertise by a national coordination unit acting as a service centre for the approved components to support their research activity, and 2) collective scientific emulation through F-CRIN inter-network collaborations.
Through this organisational model, F-CRIN is strongly involved in large-scale research projects, working in synergy with project sponsors.
The OLGA platform
OLGA (OutiL de Gestion d'Activité or Activity Management Tool) is a digital monitoring and management platform developed by F-CRIN.
F-CRIN currently represents a community of 1,500 investigating physicians and the equivalent of 400 research centres across France.
Co-developed with its future users, OLGA currently has
- 2 modules monitoring the diverse activities of the components: "Project monitoring/management" and "Budget/financial monitoring".
- sections representing 450 indicators.
OLGA is a benchmark tool for the management of complex, large-scale organisations.
