NIH Launches Worldwide Map of Biomedical Research Projects

The National Institutes of Health have launched World Report. (Though on the actual site it’s called World RePORT.) “The project is intended to provide a public means to track international research activities and partnered investments, increase awareness of funding opportunities and share results with the broader research and funding community. In addition to providing information about direct awards, World Report also tracks indirect research activity, which often occurs in collaborations between the domestic research organizations and foreign institutions. The goal is to improve understanding of the research landscape, identify gaps in funding and areas where there might be a duplication of effort, and enable funders to more effectively synergize investments.” The focus, as you might expect, is biomedical research.
