Show Me the Money! Use PIVOT to Find Funding Opportunities
Learn step-by-step how to use the PIVOT search engine to find funding opportunities specific to your research. You will learn how to

  • Write a lay-language abstract of your project to determine the type of funding you may need, timing and deadlines, and specific keywords you can use for a targeted search.
  • Set up your funding search and make it work automatically.
  • Filter, sort and analyze the search results to find the funding opportunities most suited to your needs.

A recording will be available after the session.
