There are a wide variety of outputs available on Figshare from research data, figures, and code to presentations, posters, and reports. One increasingly common output on Figshare is grant proposals — both successful and unsuccessful. The following are a few examples of grant proposals from a variety of research areas that have been uploaded to Figshare.
Lauren is a Senior Lecturer in Linguistics at La Trobe University. In 2018, Lauren uploaded her Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Research Award (DECRA) application to Figshare. While it wasn’t funded, Lauren invested several years into the application and wanted to share it with others, especially other early career researchers. By uploading the application to OPAL, La Trobe University’s instance of Figshare, Lauren can get credit for her application regardless of its success.
Fernando is a Distinguished Researcher at the University of Alicante where he leads the Dryland Ecology and Global Change Lab. Fernando has been uploading his research data to Figshare since 2012 but he recently uploaded two successful and unsuccessful European Research Council (ERC) grant applications to Figshare in the hope of helping other researchers in their pursuit of funding.
Petr is a researcher in Condensed Matter Physics at the Materials Growth & Measurement Laboratory (MGML). Petr has been uploading his research data in Figshare since 2017 but has recently created a collection of grant applications, both successful and unsuccessful.
