A directory of researchers & funding opportunities combining COS Funding Opportunities & COS Scholar Universe.
Pivot is a directory of researchers and research funding opportunities that combines two comprehensive, editorially maintained databases: the COS Funding Opportunities database of over 400,000 funding opportunities worth an estimated $33 billion, and the COS Scholar Universe database of 3 million profiles of scholars worldwide. Its proprietary algorithm compiles pre-populated researcher profiles unique to an organization (such as University of Michigan) and matches them to relevant current funding opportunities. Searching for a given scholar will link to matching funding opportunities.
Note: Access to personalized features requires personal registration and login. COS Pivot replaces the former COS Expertise service.
SPIN is a searchable database that is targeted primarily to institutions of higher education. It currently contains information from more than 2,500 different sponsoring agencies, which comprise more than 11,000 separate funding opportunities.
