FutSci (Future Science), www.FutSci.com, is the crowdfunding platform dedicated to raising funds for Research, Innovation and Technology projects within the Life Sciences arena. The platform is designed by scientists and aims to support all researchers, particularly those at an early stage in their careers by providing a complement to traditional funding avenues.
Researchers, scientists and entrepreneurs can post any project in need of funding, at any stage, and donors can select the individual projects they wish to support, with donations in multiple currencies starting as low as £1 and with no upper limit. All projects are peer reviewed before going live on the platform. The platform is open to researchers and donors worldwide. The FutSci team works closely with researchers to develop, launch and run crowdfunding campaigns.
