Get help securing research funding
We understand how important it is to secure funding for your research project, which is why we want to help you increase the chance of receiving a positive decision on your application. A key component to receiving a good outcome is articulating the value that eye tracking brings to your research, which is why we offer a support service to help you in this process – Tobii Pro’s Funding Support Services.
What is the Funding Support Services?
Funding Support Services is designed to assist researchers, who are looking to integrate eye tracking into their methodology, with their applications for grant funding.
We can help by providing:
Are you eligible?
We aim to assist all researchers who send us applications for review, but first there are some things to consider investigating and including in your document before submitting a request to our program.
We encourage you to submit your application as early as possible to give us ample time to review and ideally no later than 3-4 weeks prior to the deadline. However, if this is not possible, please still reach out and we will try our best to see how we can help.
“I am very new to eye tracking, so I didn’t know much about the data outcomes. Funding Support Services helped me understand and narrow down the required outcomes, which was critical for me as a researcher new to this field.”
In this short video, we share tips and tricks to help you gain funding including the specific eye tracking terminology to incorporate into your proposals.
If we can’t offer tailored help for your application or if you’d prefer to do it yourself, here are some additional resources.
“Funding Support Services by Tobii Pro was absolutely instrumental in helping me to obtain funding for my work on cognitive development.”
Marisa Biondi is a Senior Research Scientist at Tobii Pro and manages the Funding Support Services program in North America. This position allows her to help build an eye tracking community, through partnerships with researchers hoping to implement eye tracking in their work, or by supporting existing customers in acquiring knowledge or additional grants. Dr. Biondi has a Ph.D. in Psychological & Brain Sciences from Texas A&M University and used fNIRS and eye tracking to study the functional organization of the developing human brain.
Sheila Achermann is a research scientist at Tobii Pro where she helps researchers secure funding for their eye tracking projects and serves as a subject-matter expert on eye tracking methodology and analysis. In addition, she holds a PhD in Psychology, investigating neurodevelopmental conditions in a joint project between Uppsala University and Karolinska Institute. Her research addresses questions in developmental neuroscience using automated technology, including eye tracking and motion capture systems.
Dennis Triantafyllidis is a research scientist at Tobii Pro, where he assists researchers in their grant funding applications and provides consultancy on eye tracking projects. In addition, he has previously been involved with eye tracking diagnostic support services and training delivery. His academic background is on the fields of Computer Science and Engineering, with an interest in the hardware-efficient implementation of stream ciphers and the transmission of data streams through RFID technology.
“Tobii’s service was extremely helpful in securing grant funding. Tobii provided us with a quote for the equipment we wanted to purchase with the grant and letter of support detailing how they could support our purchasing and use of the equipment. Having this information was very valuable to show that our project methods could be carried out within our proposed budget.”
