An introduction to COS Pivot Research Funding Database
What is COS Pivot? A funding database that allows users to quickly discover the right funding opportunities and effectively collaborate with their colleagues. Designed for academic staff, researchers, and graduate students, it's intuitive and easily implemented. Provides access to the most comprehensive source of funding opportunities globally Identifies researcher expertise from within or outside of your organization Enhances communication, monitoring, and tracking amongst individual faculty, teams, or researchers and the Research Development office Allows the focus to be on winning the necessary awards and grants Enables you to add internal deadlines to critical funding opportunities and sends weekly updates on saved searches you organize in your own folders
How is it different from Research Professional? With a personalized experience through your own profile, Pivot pinpoints funding opportunities with searches that are: Accurate: Updated daily to add new information drawn from sources linked to profiles in publications from vetted sources and web content associated with a scholar's profile, and to drop out expired opportunities. Automated: Users can receive alerts whenever new matching opportunities are posted that match their saved searches. Focused: Search just one database for funding in any discipline and country, rather than multiple sources or scattershot across the internet.
