Elsevier Launches SciVal Funding Service

Sep 29, 2009

Elsevier announced the launch of SciVal Funding, a funding intelligence service for U.S. research institutions. The platform helps researchers locate the most appropriate grant opportunities in order to maximize their potential to receive funding.

SciVal Funding allows users to routinely search a daily-updated list of more than 5,000 grant sources, including federal funding bodies and private foundations. The list can be searched by subject area, award type, deadline, or amount.

This intelligence enables researchers to more accurately estimate their award chances, tailor their proposal, find collaborators and ultimately better compete for grants. Research administrators may also use this award information for performance measurement, evaluation and strategic planning purposes.
