The IRIS Database contains more than 8,000 active federal and private funding opportunities in the sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities. Search by agency, deadline date, keyword and other criteria. Most IRIS records contain live links to sponsor Web sites, electronic forms, or Electronic Research Administration (ERA) portals, so getting started on a proposal can be only a mouse-click away.
The IRIS Alert Service allows you to create and save your own IRIS search profiles. You can select your preferred search frequency (daily, weekly or monthly), delivery method (e-mail or Web) and keywords. The program runs the your profile against the IRIS Database and delivers the search results automatically. The IRIS Alert Service is a true "set it and forget it" funding alert tool.
The IRIS Expertise Service allows you to create detailed electronic CVs ("biosketches") and post them to the Web for viewing by colleagues at other institutions, program officers at federal and private funding agencies and individuals at private companies. The biosketches can be saved as HTML/XML datastream files for use with the Federal Commons and other ERA portals.
