Pivot: A Next-Generation Funding and Research Expertise Database

Pivot is a powerful tool that allows faculty and staff to quickly and easily discover funding opportunities matched to their expertise and interests and to identify potential collaborators within CUNY and beyond.

Pivot combines an editorially maintained database of funding opportunities across the disciplines, worth an estimated $33 billion with 3 million pre-populated scholar profiles. A proprietary algorithm compiles pre-populated profiles for faculty and other researchers, allowing them to instantly view a set of potential funding opportunities. Researchers can then refine the results by adding information to their profiles and creating targeted searches.

For Guttman faculty and staff, Pivot:

  • Provides access to a comprehensive source of funding opportunities that are updated daily
  • Identifies researcher expertise within or outside of CUNY
  • Allows monitoring and tracking of funding opportunities among research groups
  • Sends weekly email updates on saved searches users organize in their folders
