Presenter: Jason High, a Portland-based Sr. Training & Consulting Partner for ProQuest and former Bay area denizen. Jason specializes in helping users make the most out of Pivot to facilitate research funding and collaboration opportunities.
Pivot brings together the right research opportunities, funding, and people quickly and easily. It provides global and local connections that strengthen research by exploring new avenues for funding and collaboration for faculty, staff researchers, and students. Pivot combines the most comprehensive, editorially maintained database of funding opportunities worth an estimated $33 billion with its unique database of 3 million pre-populated scholar profiles. Its proprietary algorithm compiles pre-populated researcher profiles and matches them to current funding opportunities. This allows users to search for a funding opportunity and instantly view matching faculty from inside or outside your institution. Conversely, a search for a scholar will link to matching funding opportunities.
