Corebucks: A funding opportunity for core services
05/03/11 Portland, Ore.
Have the core resources of Harvard, Dartmouth and six other institutions at your fingertips! OHSU is participating in a National Center for Research Resources (NCRR)-funded database project called the eagle-i Consortium that will allow you to do just that. The Consortium has constructed an online search engine and database that contains over 42,000 resources and several hundred core laboratories. OHSU researchers can access the database and search for relevant resources. During the month of May, there is a financial incentive to use the eagle-i search engine to find core services at participating institutions. The Consortium hopes that CoreBucks, a competitive proposal application, will connect researchers and service providers. Researchers will have the opportunity to apply for funds to pay for services at a core facility outside of their institutions that they discovered using eagle-i.
