The mission of Grantome is to use data to drive discovery of new knowledge about scientific research grants. This knowledge can be applied to enhance the productivity and confer competitive advantage for researchers, institutions, and businesses that rely on grant funding. Towards this goal we have collected grant data from some of the world's largest and most prominent grant-giving organizations and assembled them into a single database. To facilitate discovery of the trends related to funding the specific needs of each client, we have built:
At the launch of Grantome, grant data are available from the U.S. National Institute of Health, which will be updated weekly as new data become available. In the near future the database will be expanded to include the U.S. National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Energy, as well as federal grant organizations in Canada and Europe.
We are data scientists based in Cleveland, OH USA who are scientifically trained with Ph.D. degrees in quantitative disciplines. We have over a decade worth of experience in software development, statistical analysis of large datasets and their visualization. From working in various research organizations and universities in the US, Canada, and Europe, we have first hand experience in the scientific funding process.
