The COS Pivot™ database answers the growing demands on research developers to quickly discover the right funding opportunities and effectively collaborate with their colleagues. Pivot combines a comprehensive, editorially maintained database of funding opportunities worth an estimated $33 billion with a unique database of 3 million pre-populated scholar profiles, drawn from Community of Scholars and Community of Science profiles. Its algorithm compiles pre-populated researcher profiles unique to an organization and matches them to current funding opportunities in the COS database. This allows users to search for a funding opportunity and instantly view matching faculty from inside or outside an institution. Conversely, a search for a scholar will link to matching funding opportunities.
