The Spinbase users in Tampere University are in full agreement on the fact that using regular search engines to find EU funding or project partners does not yield such comprehensive and easy-to-read search results as Spinbase. According to them, in Spinbase, knowledge on hierarchy is not required for making successful searches and the access is more user friendly than in other portals used to search funding.
