Lund University (LU) has a new database for research funding opportunities: Pivot-RP replaces Research Professional, the latter which LU has subscribed for during a number of years. Pivot-RP and Research Professional will run in parallel until approximately October 2022.
Using Pivot-RP you can search for research funding opportunities in all scientific fields, from both national and international sources. You can also search for funding to participate in research conferences, and for post-doc funding.
In addition, Pivot-RP lets you:
– receive emails on current calls;
– save your application profiles;
– save interesting calls;
– share information with your colleagues.
To log in and create a profile:
You can either log in using your university assigned e-mail address and a password of your own choosing, or by first selecting Lund University from the pull-down menu and then logging in using your Lucat-ID.
You can use Pivot-RP straight away without creating a personal profile. However, a profile is needed in order to save searches and set up e-mail alerts on relevant funding opportunities.
As Pivot-RP is connected to Lund’s Research Portal, you as a researcher should already have a profile in place. You access this profile by claiming it when you are encouraged to do so. It is also possible to create a personal profile manually with your university e-mail address.
