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.
