Update

SMARTS is an automated alerts system that notifies subscribers about relevant external funding opportunities matching the subscriber’s research interest keywords saved in the subscriber's GENIUS 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.

In March 2014, InfoEd released an expanded SPIN product to UNH.  The “new SPIN” alerts service uses the Library of Congress Keyword Thesaurus, whereas SMARTS still uses the original InfoEd Keyword Thesaurus. 

Current SMARTS users wishing to create/save searches in “new SPIN” should delete the corresponding SMARTS keywords in their GENIUS Profiles to minimize duplicate notifications.

Individuals wishing to use “new SPIN” only should disable their SMARTS functionality.
