Easy-to-use online service that allows organisations and individuals to discover relevant research funds efficiently

Open 4 Research is a funding information management service designed for universities who need  high volume access to funding information and updates on daily basis.

The personalised, intuitive Open 4 Research funding service enables everyone in your organisation to be updated on the latest information on research grants and calls from European and international funders. With timely and comprehensive coverage of funds relevant to students, academics and researchers, the service makes it easier than ever to find funding for research projects.

Open 4 Research enables individual researchers and students to ‘self-serve’ and search for their own funding at the point they need it, using interface they prefer - open browse or filtered search. Your organisation does not need to maintain the service and can choose their level of involvement in managing access, capturing statistics on areas of interest and measuring return on investment.

Paris Descartes University comments: “The Open4Research tool is facilitating the daily work of the Pre-award Research Office by offering an intuitive and complete interface to our researchers. Our academics can access the service whenever they require and find targeted funding searches. Our users can easily set up email alerts notifying them of new and update funding programmes relating to their funding searches.”.
