Pivot: Funding Opportunities and Profiles
Pivot is a leading provider of information resources to researchers, scholars and other professionals around the globe. Pivot brings together the world's prominent scientists at more than 2,000 organizations including universities, corporations, and government agencies worldwide. Pivot provides services that enable these professionals to find the funding, people and information that are important to their work. Nova Southeastern University's current subscription includes the following services:
- Pivot Funding Opportunities is the world's largest source of information about available funding for all types of projects in all disciplines.
You may access this service using your NSU email address at http://pivot.cos.com.
- Pivot Profile is a database of over 3 million profiles that contain information about all aspects of a researcher’s academic career: qualifications, positions held, patents, publications, grants, honors and awards, and much more.
To search Pivot Profile for colleagues, collaborators, or others, simply go to http://pivot.cos.com/profiles/main from any computer.
Pivot automatically creates faculty profiles, which can be updated through Pivot. However, if your profile cannot be located, you can have one created by clicking on the Suggest a Scholar link under “claim or create a profile” in the Pivot Profiles tab.
- Pivot allows you to set up and save funding searches, as well as receive weekly notifications of new funding information that match your searches. In addition to funding searches you have created, Pivot will also identify funding opportunities for you based on the information you have submitted in your profile. At any time, you may log in to your Pivot account to access archived results, or to modify your searches.
