How it works

ResearcherSkills is a platform collecting skill-based profiles from individual researchers in all disciplines and sectors offering technical help, equipment and services. The webpage is a meeting point for researchers either at public institutions or private companies with the aim of optimising resources and collaborations. It is free to browse for everybody and here is how it works:

Creating a profile:

1.    If you are an individual offering your technical expertise or knowledge.

•    Sign up and create an expert profile to offer your skills as a paid service if you choose to (see related FAQs) or simply to increase your visibility to potential collaborators. Any scientific discipline is welcome! Your profile should be only about your offered skill: this can be a specific laboratory technique, technical knowledge or an expertise. Just remember this is a profile about your skill, not about yourself or your research. Make your profile as appealing as possible. The more complete the more visits it will attract. Add relevant papers to your work, pictures, etc... 

•    Receive messages and set up your service or new collaboration.

2.    If you are an equipment provider:

•    Sign up and create a facility profile to increase the turnover and visibility of your equipment/facility. You can include as many pieces of equipment as you wish, you can also link a calendar showing your equipment availability. Include all equipment specificities and if you provide any technical assistance for its use.

3.    If you are company service provider:

•    Sign up and create a company profile if you wish to advertise your services on ResearcherSkills and reach a worldwide community of scientists. Please, contact us for more information.
