COS Pivot

For years, COS has delivered tools focused on helping researchers find funding opportunities as well as potential collaborators. COS is now taking the next giant step with Pivot.

Pivot provides Research Administrators, Research Development Professionals, and their institutions the edge to bring together the right research opportunities, funding, and people—quickly and easily. It provides global and local connections that strengthen research by exploring new avenues for funding and collaboration—for faculty, staff researchers, and graduate students.

Pivot is a powerful tool that:
  • Provides access to the most comprehensive source of funding opportunities globally
  • Identifies researcher expertise from within or outside of your organization
  • Fosters collaboration by cultivating essential partnerships and alliances
  • Allows the focus to be on winning the necessary awards and grants by removing the more tedious aspects of finding and connecting funding
  • Enhances communication, monitoring, and tracking amongst individual faculty, teams, or researchers and the Research Development office
  • Builds a strong network of connections for faculty members to rely on throughout their careers
