This interesting article on Plos One highlights the importance of networking and collaboration for research funding:

Our findings highlight the significant role of networking and collaboration. It was observed that being a member of large scientific teams and getting connected to productive researchers who have also a good control over the collaboration network and the flow of information can increase the chances for securing more money. In fact, our results show that in the quest for the research money it is more important how researchers build their collaboration network than what publications they produce and whether they are cited.

Why not put a call out for collaborators in our Research Collaboration Space?
