Pivot is a powerful tool that combines funding and collaboration opportunities for researchers and graduate students across all disciplines. Formerly separate Community of Science (COS) databases, (COS Funding Opportunities, COS Expertise and COS Scholar Universe), Pivot is pre-populated with Northeastern researcher profiles (and others) 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 Northeastern. Searching by name will link to matching funding opportunities. Pivot also allows individuals to create unique funding searches, choose to receive weekly emails based upon those searches, and track relevant opportunities.
