There are several groups of Funders available in the "Funder Groups" list (detailed below). These are either grouped based on formal funder structure within a country (e.g. NIH, NSF) or associations/membership groups of funders with a certain focus (e.g. ICRP, AMRC).

To view which funders are included in each group, or when this group was last modified, select "Browse" next to "Funder Groups" in the filter on the left-hand side, then select "Show details" for the group you're interested in. There you can also export all funder group definitions in spreadsheet format or copy a selected group to your own custom "My Groups".

(The "Funder Groups" filter is currently only available in Dimensions Analytics.)
