Today, our portfolio company ÜberResearch has been welcomed by Leidos, the global science and technology solutions and services leader, to OnPAR.

OnPAR is the Online Partnership to Accelerate Research and was originally launched in March 2016 by the Leidos Life Sciences team, in partnership with the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

OnPAR offers a new funding paradigm with the goal of matching highly scored, unfunded grant applications with potential non-government funding organizations. ÜberResearch will contribute key capabilities from the Dimensions platform, providing pertinent global funding landscape data alongside its unique natural language processing (NLP) matching tool that routes relevant grant applications to funders.

Martin Dueñas, Director, Health Research Management Practice, Leidos Life Sciences says:

“ÜberResearch provides critical information for funding organizations and is a natural partner for OnPAR.” 

OnPAR with Dimensions will provide a global research knowledge management platform that will empower funding organizations and private industry to make more informed strategic investments. In addition, the data mining tools and analytics within OnPAR with Dimensions will facilitate greater perspective, and insight previously unavailable, by linking research projects and literature that were never before recognized as relevant, ultimately furthering advances in research discovery and development.

Dr. Duane Williams, Vice President of ÜberResearch adds:

“We are thrilled to partner with Leidos in support of the OnPAR effort. Dimensions will provide additional information including a broad view of the global research landscape to facilitate more informed research investment decisions.”
