For many years, SMARTS has been the automated alerts system that notifies UNH subscribers about relevant external funding opportunities matching the subscriber’s research interest keywords saved in the subscriber's Profile. Notices of new opportunities are sent to the subscriber’s e-mail address shortly after being announced by sponsors; ongoing programs are announced annually.

On August 27, 2015, UNH will be transitioning from SMARTS to the saved-search system based in SPIN.

Current users were sent this message on August 10: 
Transition on Aug 27 from SMARTS to SPIN-based Funding Opportunity Matching and Notification Service

Current SMARTS users wishing to create/save searches in SPIN prior to the transition should delete the corresponding SMARTS keywords in their Profiles to minimize duplicate notifications.

Individuals wishing to use SPIN only should disable their current SMARTS functionality.
