Build your Research Team Using UK’s New Search Tool!
You’ve used SPIFi (Sponsored Project Information Files) to search UK’s externally funded sponsored projects database. Now, UK Research has developed a new Search for UK Collaborators tool to further support your team science needs. This relational tool searches the OSPA database to identify and rank the top 25 projects based on similarities between the input text and terms in the ‘keywords,’ ‘abstract,’ and ‘topical areas’ fields in the sponsored projects database. The ranking can assist you in finding investigators, academic units, and funding sources that are well aligned for your research area.
