Overview - What is Pivot-RP?

Competition for research funding continues to rise, globally. Yet research offices and research administrators are being pressed to do more for their researchers with less resources. 

Researchers and research administrators need a platform that identifies new funding opportunities and potential collaborators while offering insights and short-cuts to help research organizations win a larger share of available funding.

With more than 20 years of experience, Pivot-RP unifies Pivot® and Research Professional in one platform, bringing together the most trusted funding awareness solutions for hundreds of the world’s leading research institutions. Pivot-RP accelerates the research process by connecting researchers to the most comprehensive global source of funding opportunities and facilitates collaborator discovery.

Claiming Your Profile (optional but highly recommended)

  • you'll get relevant funding alerts by email. 

3. Pivot-RP will display a list of possible matching profiles, based on your account information:

  • If you see the correct profile, select "This is me" in the profile row. If the email address on the profile you are claiming matches the email address on your Pivot-RP user account, Pivot sends a confirmation email with a verification link.
  • If you see multiple profiles or have difficulty claiming an existing profile, follow the onscreen prompts for assistance.
  • If you can't find any Pivot-RP profiles that match you, you can create your own profile by clicking Create your profile. Follow the on-screen steps, including things like entering any different names you have published under, details about your publications, and so on.  

Once you have claimed your profile, you can edit your profile at any time. Open the Profiles tab and click Your Profile. Or, from the Home dashboard page, click My Profile. Details about updating your profile can be found in other training sessions.
