For many years, SMARTS was an automated alerts system that notified UNH subscribers about relevant external funding opportunities matching the subscriber’s research interest keywords saved in the subscriber's Profile.

In the fall of 2015, UNH transitioned from SMARTS to the new SPIN (Sponsored Programs Information Network) funding opportunity matching and notification service. The process, unfortunately, has not been a smooth one.

To restart your notifications, please contact Lynnette Hentges at lynnette.hentges@unh.edu or 862-2002.
