Go to Pivot / Community of Science homepage
Pivot / Community of Science publishes databases useful to the research community funding opportunities, in expertise, funded research, patents, and others. UM faculty and staff may search many of these databases free-of-charge.
(Please read the COS Funding Opportunities Instructions for a thorough guide on how to best conduct a COS search. http://fundingopps2.cos.com/docs/help_toc.shtml is the site for the instructions. )
Subscribers to COS include multi-national corporations, small to mid-size firms, start-up companies, government agencies, economic development groups, and other organizations seeking university expertise. Since access is limited to authorized subscribers, any inquiry made to the University or the faculty as the result of a search should be a serious request to discuss research support or collaboration.
