Jerusalem, Israel—April 23, 2019. Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, is pleased to announce that its Research Professional Funding Insight service has added five sources to the database of awarded research grants.
Funding Insight is a subscription service that offers editorially curated news and data aimed at helping researchers decide which funding opportunities to apply for. The Funding Insight awards database provides researchers and research offices with information on hundreds of thousands of past award winners linked to current and future funding opportunities. This valuable information about funder trends, which dates back to the year 2000, can make the grant-application process more efficient and increase the success rate of such applications.
The following sources were recently added to the Research Professional Funding Insight database adding more than 50,000 enriched data records:
- Innovate UK
- The Academy of Finland
- The Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF)
- Interreg Europe
- Additional data from the US National Institutes of Health (NIH)
The expansion of the Research Professional Funding Insight service will assist researchers and research offices in focusing on funders that are the most relevant to their grant applications.
Shlomi Kringel, corporate vice president of learning and research solutions at Ex Libris, noted, "Ex Libris provides the most complete coverage of research funding worldwide, through Research Professional and Pivot funding services. The expansion of the Funding Insight Awards Database is part of our continuous investment in global reporting of research funding sources. We look forward to increasing our coverage and helping researchers continue to find support for their work."
