ResearchConnect and the Global Campus API

ResearchConnect, part of Idox Software Ltd, is a global research funding opportunities platform. It’s trusted by over 120 universities and other R&D active organisations around the world. Supporting organisations and researchers to identify the most relevant and interesting funds is at the heart of everything we do. We pride ourselves on the work of our huge team of content creators, who search day-in and day-out to find and write about funding to help our clients grow and thrive. Connecting researchers as quickly and accurately as possible to the best matches is a fundamental part of that.

Through our long-established partnership with the creators of Global Campus, we have been able to make fantastic use of their API to create AI-enabled features and modules that are fully integrated into ResearchConnect. As a supplier to the global Higher Education sector, it’s vital that we continuously demonstrate that we are innovative and on the front foot and these features are a huge leap forward.

We are passionate about delivering the gold standard solution to identify and match researchers and funding, our relationship with the Global Campus team has enabled us to always be thinking ahead to the best ways to do this. We share an ethos on listening and responding to the needs of the sector, so we have been delighted with the reaction to the use of their API in the latest module to be released as part of the ResearchConnect suite; Find Academics.

Find Academics

The latest module launched in ResearchConnect utilises the Global Campus API to allow research coordinators and managers in universities to pinpoint the best placed researchers in their institutions to be involved in a submission for funding. By clicking on a call or fund, they find a list of academics with the best match, making establishing consortia incredibly efficient. This unique approach works in reverse to the traditional approach of building or using an existing profile first and seeing what matches return.


The integration of the Find Academics feature is receiving a really positive reaction from those that have seen it and taken it up as part of their ResearchConnect subscription. The insight and efficiency it creates is certainly generating a great deal of enthusiasm.
