Pivot – Connecting Funding and Research Expertise
Locating and securing research funding is becoming increasingly competitive, as funding opportunities are limited and the number of researchers vying for those dollars continues to grow. Pivot™ answers the growing demands on research developers to quickly discover the right funding opportunities and effectively collaborate with their colleagues. With Pivot, ProQuest continues their commitment to empower researchers around the world with tools that they need at various stages of their research lifecycle. Pivot is intuitive and easy to use. It is designed for a researcher – anyone from corporate to academia (faculty, staff researchers, and graduate students) can benefit from using it. Pivot is an unmatched tool that: a) Provides access to the most comprehensive source of funding opportunities globally; b) Identifies researcher expertise from within or outside of your organization; c) Users can search for a funding opportunity and instantly view matching faculty from inside or outside their institution. Conversely, a search for a scholar will link to matching funding opportunities; d) Allows the focus to be on winning the necessary awards and grants; e) Enables you to add internal deadlines to critical funding opportunities and sends weekly updates on saved searches; f) Users can receive alerts whenever new matching opportunities are posted that match their saved searches; g) Create groups for sharing funding opportunities on an ongoing basis; and h) Enhances communication, monitoring, and tracking amongst individual faculty, teams, or researchers and the Research Development office.
