The Research Cooperative seeks practical and financial sponsors to maintain, develop, and promote our NPO network.
Sponsors can be acknowledged in various ways. The primary means of acknowledgment is through display of a sponsor logo or name on our 100companies.co page, representing our current most active sponsor group.
Branded sponsorship at the Research Cooperative
If you or your company or institution can offer to sponsor our network in practical or financial ways, please contact Dr Peter J. Matthews (researchcooperative-at-gmail-dot-com). Thank you.
As an NPO network, the Research Cooperative requires sponsorship and member donations to cover costs for hosting, maintainence, development, and promotion.
As network creator, I can cover costs for some development and promotion, but future support will need to be provided by other people or companies with good understanding of the scientific and educational "publishing ecosystem".
To attract sponsors, we need to choose sponsors who have natural interest in the aims of the network, and must offer ways to make the business or social activities of each sponsor visible.
One way to do this is through "branded sponsorship" -- providing a central online presence for each category of sponsor for the Research Cooperative in a way that "lifts all ships" at the same time.
As a starting point, I can offer dedicated sponsor tiles in a static page that has a simple, memorable domain name and keyword tags.
