Digital Science launches GRID

Open dataset provides information on institutional research funding around the world.

The Global Research Identifier Database (GRID) is an online database of information about research organisations around the world. 

GRID contains 50,000 manually curated institutional names, unique identifiers and geo-location information across 212 countries. It includes the majority of institutions that have received research funding.   The dataset will provide researchers, governments, academic institutions and commercial organisations with access to clean and standardised information about funding bodies.
