    SPIN/SMARTS Update

    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, was not a smooth one.

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