OnPAR – Online Partnership to Accelerate Research

OnPAR was launched last March with the National Institute of Health (NIH) to match high-scoring

“unfunded applications” with non-government organizations. OnPAR with Dimensions covers all

NIH and all grants mechanisms from fellowships, R01 (Basic Research) to SBRI/

STTRs (Small Business Phase I/II).

The original idea was to collect highly scored unfunded applications and find non-gov organization

open to review and potentially fund these projects.  OnPAR is now the  only platform providing a

window into research projects that are not in the public domain – then, allowing organizations to

find partners/assets but also de-risk their internal/external R&D and/or funding decisions. 

OnPAR is in the process of expanding to other US agencies, i.e., NSF, DoD, CMS, NASA, DOE,

and others, and internationally, Canada (CIHR), UK (MRC), Australia (NHMR), EU Commission,

Japan (AMED), Singapore A-STAR and others.

The abstract submission/registration does not have to be routed through ORA. If the PI is contacted

and asked to submit, they must route at that time.  Please see the attachment for the current list of

OnPAR Members and additional information.
