The Research Perspectives database contains details of 48,200 grants from the EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council), CORDIS (Community Research and Development Information Service) and NSF (National Science Foundation). These can be keyword searched here. Search terms are stemmed using the Porter Stemming Algorithm and searched against a database of stemmed terms associated with each grant. This ensures all grants containing any derivation of a search term are returned. Returned grants are ranked by keyword incidence.
The data for this project will be stored in a MySQL production server in the Department of Computer Science at Heriot Watt University. This is backed up on a nightly basis.
