Researchers looking for funding opportunities now have one more resource available to them. SciVal Funding covers grants available from over 5,000 funding bodies from all over the world. Researchers can search by sponsor name or subject area. Sponsor information includes subject areas funded, names of awardee institutions, and the types of grants or contracts available. To assist in finding relevant funding opportunities, the database includes historical funding data, award trends, potential collaborators and competitors.
The UT Health Science Center Libraries are able to provide access to this database through a collaboration with UT System. Click on Databases on the libraries’ home page and enter “SciVal Funding” in the search box. Another related database available to UT Health Science Center researchers, thanks to funding from the Institute for Integration of Medicine and Science (IIMS), is SciVal Experts, an innovative research tool that documents collaborations between researchers. Access to these databases is restricted and Health Science Center users must sign in when searching from off campus.
Librarians are available to provide instruction or demonstrations on these databases. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 210-567-2450 for more information.
