To expand international collaborations researchers need to identify funding opportunities. Existing indexing services may be too narrowly focused on specific research disciplines; lack relevant opportunities; become overpopulated by expired opportunities; or require membership fees that prohibit broad access. To address these barriers, NSF has sponsored the creation of a funding clearinghouse website: Newton’s List. This session will review its content, technology, and operating model.
