Elsevier's SciVal Funding Expands Globally
Date:6/24/2011

AMSTERDAM, June 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --


Comprehensive Funding Tool now Available in Canada, U.K. and EU

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the expansion of SciVal Funding to regions outside of the United States, enabling institutions to identify international funding opportunities.

Through the international expansion of SciVal Funding, researchers, research administrators and research development professionals in Canada, the United Kingdom and the European Union will now have access to relevant funding opportunities and awarded grant data under a single integrated solution. SciVal Funding will be expanded to Australia in August and to Singapore, South Africa, India, New Zealand and Ireland by the end of 2011.

"Increasing funding application success rates in today's increasingly collaborative and international research community requires a global perspective and access to appropriate resources," said Niels Weertman, Vice-President SciVal, at Elsevier. "The expanded coverage of funding opportunities and awarded grants information of SciVal Funding highlights Elsevier's ongoing commitment to empower institutions worldwide to implement performance, planning and funding strategies that are global in scope and collaborative in nature."

Recognizing the challenges of increased competition for funding, Elsevier developed SciVal Funding to optimize the pre-award stage of the research cycle. The tool leads researchers, research administrators and research development professionals to grants with the greatest potential for success by integrating current funding opportunities with publication information and historical award data. Updated daily, funding opportunities can be explored by subject area, award type, deadline or amount. Also, SciVal Funding provides customized recommendations and alerts by matching funding opportunity data to pre-populated researcher profiles that are continuously updated. Research administrators may also use award information for performance measurement, evaluation and strategic planning purposes. Access to a comprehensive pool of funding opportunities as well as the ability to uncover new sources of financial support is especially critical in these uncertain economic times.

The inclusion of funding opportunities, award information and pre-populated researcher profiles from these newly added countries, as well as the addition of nearly 700 funding bodies to the more than 3,000 U.S.-based sources currently available in the platform, will allow institutions to discover international funding opportunities, resulting in more effective collaboration.
