  • What is SciFlies?
    • SciFlies makes science happen by filling the serious funding gap for the advancement of research and development projects that lead to new discoveries and innovation.
    • Our grassroots approach creates a new model for funding scientific research that allows the general public to get involved by making micro-donations to scientific discovery, resulting in transformative events that impact research, development and innovation.
    • This model showcases vetted and qualified research projects from across all fields of scientific inquiry, allowing anyone, anywhere to directly support research that they care about.
  • How SciFlies Works
  • Benefits to Researchers
    • Micro donations make hundreds of research projects possible – projects that would otherwise have to wait for funding or not be funded at all.
    • Research projects that are limited in time and scope and for which small dollars are required will be possible through SciFlies funding.
    • Researchers gain more visibility, connect with a wider audience of donors and enhance public knowledge of their work.
    • Funds from SciFlies donors can speed the progress of investigation and lead to faster scientific breakthroughs.
  • Benefits to Institutions
    • Raise the national status of participating institutions or companies to a higher level.
    • Elevate the reputation of the university/institution or business for embracing innovative funding models.
    • Enhance exploratory research and development which leads to greater discovery, more publications and an increase in intellectual property and patent production.
  • Benefits to Donors
    • The general public has an easy and cost-effective way to advance scientific research that personally appeals to them.
    • People learn about and fund a scientist and his/her work, thereby becoming more engaged with ground-breaking research.
    • 100% of public donations go to the research institution.
    • Citizens connect to and build their own personal portfolio of scientific research projects.
