SPIN Global Suite
Tennessee Tech University is committed to strengthening the infrastructure and expanding the capacity for research, innovation, and entrepreneurship. InfoEd Global’s SPIN Global Suite is a resource offered by the Office of Research to aid faculty in their search for external funding opportunities.
The SPIN Global Suite consists of three components:
SPIN: A searchable database of more than 40,000 funding opportunities from current national and international government and private funding sources
GENIUS: A Curriculum Vitae and Biosketch Database (Please note that the GENIUS component is currently deactivated and undergoing an upgrade)
SMARTS: An automated alert system that sends results from user saved searches via email on a daily or weekly basis.
To access the SPIN database and SMARTS system, create a new profile, or edit an existing profile, click here.
