What is sci-fund?

Intelligent support for the semantic discovery and management of funding opportunities

Do not spend endless hours trying to identify a fitting funding opportunity for your research. sci-fund semantically analyses structured and unstructured data and retrieves the most relevant opportunities based on your set of criteria. An abundance of filters allows for the refinement of results, whilst the created knowledge graph allows visual exploration, reveals semantic correlations, allowing researchers to access “hidden” opportunities.

Core functionality

  • Retrieve research funding information, from both structured and unstructured sources, at the international or national level
  • Semantically analyze the information using state-of-the-art natural language processing techniques
  • Create knowledge graphs that link funding opportunities with research and industry themes, individuals, organizations, projects, etc.
  • Provide advanced tools for searching, visualizing and interacting with the information
