Who Benefits?Our goal is to improve the scientific ecosystem for all parties involved. We believe that reproducibility is critical for maintaining trust in the community.
With Science Bounties, you'll be able to generate additional income by confirming or refuting others' already-published and peer-reviewed science. If you’re good, you may never have to fill out another grant application! Unless, of course, you actually have an idea that will change the course of science. The rest of us will just make sure you are correct.
The primary source of basic science research grant funding is institutional. This includes governments, grant-making foundations, and private companies’ R&D budget. Institutions will be able create Science Bounties on isolated, already-published journal articles and currently active studies.
We expect to retain a percentage of each bounty created on our platform. Due to the size of the scientific grant making market (well over a $trillion globally), we believe we are at the forefront of a tremendous opportunity and a turning point in the nature of scientific research.
