The research funding database Research Professional is replaced by Pivot-RP

The global database for research funding opportunities that Lund University has subscribed to for some time – Research Professional – is now replaced by Pivot-RP.

All key features found in Research Professional are also available in Pivot-RP, such as the potential to save your frequent searches and receive e-mail notifications with interesting funding opportunities. To do this, one need first to create a personal profile.

Researchers visible in LU:s Research Portal can choose to claim a profile at their first log in occasion, as their e-mail connects to an established Pivot-RP profile. It is also possible to create a profile from scratch once logged in, an option employable for e.g. administrative personnel. 

Please note that the database can be used to filter out funding opportunities without a personal profile.

Find Pivot-RP here: Pivot-RP | Pivot-RP (

Log in by selecting Lund University in the drop down menu ”Use log in from my institution”, and log in using your Lucat-identity.

If you have any questions regarding the switch to Pivot-RP, you are welcome to contact: johanna [dot] mellgren [at] fs [dot] lu [dot] se.

Research Professional will stay available up until the middle of the autumn semester 2022.
