Explore Princeton's online resources to connect researchers and funders

Tuesday, Jan 22, 2019

Whether you are Princeton faculty or staff, or work for a company, foundation or other institution, several Princeton University online resources can provide you with helpful information to expand engagement between Princeton researchers and potential external collaborators.

Research Funding Information

If you are looking for financial support for your Princeton research project, the Funding Opportunities section of the CEFR website provides information on the types of funding available, how to learn more about each type of funding and who on campus can assist you.

The CEFR listing of Requests for Proposals  can be particularly helpful; this stream of limited and open submission funding calls from corporations and foundations is continuously updated with curated opportunities that best fit the research interests of Princeton faculty. Last year, the CEFR staff identified, posted and disseminated almost 130 RFPs.

Mike Hodges coordinates this distribution effort: Please contact Mike if you have any questions, or if you are a representative of an external funding organization and would like to ensure your opportunities are highlighted at Princeton.

Researchwith.Princeton.edu: Find Information on Princeton Research, Researchers, and Core Facilities

Princeton University has launched Research With Princeton, a public database to make it easier for anyone to discover Princeton's many research assets. The database is focused on the science, technology, mathematics and policy fields and currently catalogs published research; select researchers and their collaborators; and the University's scientific facilities available for external use.

Research With Princeton is designed to help industry identify potential research collaborators. It is part of an initiative by the State of New Jersey, ResearchWithNJ.com, to develop a comprehensive database containing the research assets of all six research universities located in the state. But the Princeton database has already proven useful to Princeton's own staff as a centralized, convenient tool to find continuously updated faculty profiles, lists of publications, research topics and collaborative networks. 

Whether you are at Princeton or with an external organization, please take a moment to explore and bookmark Research With Princeton. Let us know what you think about this new tool and how it may be useful to you. Contact Rajiv Hota with your comments and questions.
