InfoEd International

InfoEd is the leading provider of Web-based integrated electronic Research Administration solutions for the identification and administration of Sponsored Funds. InfoEd consists of three modules: SPIN, GENIUS, and SMARTS. These modules greatly reduce the time and effort related to managing grants and contracts by centrally defining standard information into appropriate fields and returning to the investigator tailored, daily emails pertaining to their particular field of interest.

SPIN is a funding opportunities database designed to provide up-to-date information on current national and international government and private funding sources.

GENIUS is a global WWW network and database of scientific and scholarly expertise. The system contains profiles entered and maintained by scholars and researchers at leading universities and research institutions throughout the world.

SMARTS is an investigator alert system that matches investigators or profile information with SPIN. Matching is conducted on a daily basis and programs are emailed to researchers.

The SPINPlus Tutorial will take you through the steps of accessing SPINPlus and running searches/creating reports in SPIN and GENIUS search. It will also guide you through the steps for creating/editing a GENIUS profile to receive SMARTS matches and/or to store your curriculum vitae.
