Pivot RP Access for all Researchers at Unifr !

The SPR team is pleased to inform you that you now have access to Pivot RP: an advanced search tool for research funding opportunities. Pivot RP offers access to an extensive and editorially curated database of national and international funding opportunities. You can use it to tailor searches for funding to your specific needs depending on your discipline and career stage, to set up funding alerts, to search for potential collaborators for new projects, and much more.

The tool offers something for every discipline and can find funding opportunities for niche subjects. We suggest you sign in immediately to claim your Unifr profile and conduct a couple of test searches for relevant opportunities. You can sign in here by choosing the University of Fribourg from the drop-down menu and then using your SWITCH edu-ID.

The tool’s interface is intuitive to use, so you should be fine to get started right away. Nevertheless, do not hesitate to contact Regine Maritz ( at the SPR if any questions or comments regarding this new tool arise. Alternatively, if you would like to profit from a more in-depth look at some advanced search features, join us via Teams for our online training session on the 19th of October at 12.15 pm. A Pivot RP specialist will introduce the tool’s functions in English (30’), and then we will have a Q&A where you will be able to ask questions in English, German, or French.

You can connect via Teams to the meeting on the 19th of October at 12.15 pm using this link.
