Databases & Information ServicesPivot-RP
Pivot-RP is a comprehensive database of funding opportunities and collaborators across all disciplines that is accessible using a web browser. All faculty, staff, and students at Heidelberg University (excl. the Medical Faculties) have free access to this resource.
Pivot-RP enables researchers to identify potential funding opportunities, for example: research, travel, fellowships and training. You can mark and track highly relevant opportunities to receive updates when the opportunity changes and to get personal reminders about the opportunity's deadlines. You can also share opportunities, browse opportunities shared with you, and create alerts to be notified when new opportunities that match certain criteria are added to Pivot-RP.
Access to Pivot-RP is limited to members of Heidelberg University (Login via Uni ID; select “Access Pivot-RP using your Institution's Credentials” > Heidelberg University). When you first log in to Pivot-RP, you can either claim a profile as yours, if one already exists in Pivot-RP, or you can create a new profile. Profiles are important to customize your funding alerts and to find potential research collaborators.
