Today the Academic Entrepreneur submitted a research project proposal “Triple Helix Scotland: Perceptions on the Independence Referendum” on Experiment.com . Upon its launch a new blog post will be posted.
Experiment.com, a new way to raise funds for research, was hatched at Paul Graham’s Y-Combinator and launched on February 5th, 2014. It has been described as the “Kickstarter for Scientitsts”. In the case of the Academic Entrepreneur, for a social scientist. Recent press highlighted a fracking research project.
Part of the fun has been trying out Experiment.com itself. In a new blog post, more will be written about the start-up, and the whole crowdfunding of research area. The Academic Entrepreneur is most interested in following the change occurring in the market for research funding itself.
