Research Funding Opportunities Workshop - PIVOT
Presented by the Research and Innovation Office
PIVOT is a research funding opportunities database that gives researchers the opportunity to discover the right research opportunities, funding, and collaborators quickly and easily. It provides global and local connections that strengthen research by exploring new avenues for funding and collaboration for both staff researchers and graduate students.
