Science: New Funding Matchmaker Will Cater to NIH Rejects

Science reported on a new pilot program which launched in March and seeks to match researchers and funders.

“The Online Partnership to Accelerate Research (OnPAR), a collaboration between NIH and the defense, engineering, and health contractor Leidos, lets researchers upload rejected NIH proposals to an online portal where potential funders can review the scores received from reviewers, and decide whether to put up cash.”

The pilot program will last for a year and hinges greatly upon the participation of private funders.
