Elements of SPINPlus

SPIN (Sponsored Programs Information Network) is a research funding opportunities database designed to provide up-to-date information on current national and international government and private funding sources.

GENIUS (Global Expertise Network for Industry, University and Scholars) is a global web-based database which contains profiles entered and maintained by scholars and researchers at leading universities and research institutions throughout the world. GENIUS provides a searchable resource for identifying talent and expertise for industry/university partnering, global partnering and sponsored funding matches.

SMARTS (SPIN Matching And Research Transmittal Service) is an electronic matching and funding opportunity notification system which provides investigators with a direct and targeted electronic link to comprehensive and current national and international research funding information. The investigator profile information is collected via forms in GENIUS and used for matching with the SPIN database. Matching is conducted on a daily basis and programs are automatically e-mailed to each researcher.
