Totally reliable. Totally relevant
The funding opportunities database in *Research Professional has been chosen over and over again by leading universities for its coverage, accuracy, relevance and reliability.
We cover all scholarly disciplines: from medicine to the humanities; from the largest research council to the smallest private charity; from big multi-centre collaborative grants to small travel grants and consultancy.
The reality for most universities is that they draw funding from a variety of different sources—some local, some national, some international. We compile our database in the same way.
Right now, we have national data sets covering Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, South Africa, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
In these countries, we make sure we are completely comprehensive. And we also go down to the regional level. So in Australia, for example, we also pull together all the funding available state by state.
On top of this, we have a European data set that covers all Pan-European funding, both from the European Commission and other funders.
And we have a global data set of thousands of funders in dozens of other countries—particularly the US—who make funding available globally, including for example the NIH, the Gates foundation and the DFG.
But if you’re at a university in Canada, you don’t want your database cluttered up with funding from Ireland that you can’t apply for. And if you’re a company, you don’t want opportunities that only academics can apply for. That’s why every funding opportunity is carefully checked for eligibility.
So in the end, the database we supply to you includes every funding opportunity from all of these data sets that people at your institution can apply for. And none of the ones that you can’t apply for. It’s a quality we call simpatico. We adjust our database to suit your needs—and ensures that what we deliver to you is not only a huge, diverse database of funding opportunities but is also both reliable and relevant.
