This database allows searches according to individual research interests and features a searchable database of thousands of potential collaborators. While the SPIN search allows faculty members to search for funding opportunities and receive information directly, the Genius/Smarts allows them to create a profile, and choose keywords according to their research interests. Upon signing up, Smarts Genius will start providing individuals with daily e-mail alerts and notices of funding opportunities related to the chosen keywords.
For instructions on how to use this service please see: InfoEd - Find Funding and Profile Quick Reference Card. The Office of Grants and Contracts can also help faculty members in registering and creating their profiles. This can be done by providing OGC with the faculty full name, email address, department and keywords.
