Research Project Description

The Institute for Research on Innovation and Science (IRIS) is an IRB-approved data repository that is the anchor for a consortium of (currently) 35 research universities who share restricted administrative data. IRIS serves as a trusted intermediary to clean, hold, improve, and responsibly share data for research use. IRIS will partner with Duality to serve as a use case and help in both developing usable open source tools for social science research users of restricted data and in convening a user group to help in assessing design needs.



Over the 18-month project term IRIS will:

? Provide secure access to IRIS systems and data to support development and testing of new software tools

? Develop and document both public use and restricted analytic datasets for analysis using new duality tools

? Consult on social science research needs, statistical tools and methods for inclusion and testing in the software to be produced

? Contribute analyses to aid in validation of secure statistical tools developed under this project

? Convene a social science user group drawn from active users of restricted IRIS data to contribute to design and initial testing of software tools developed under this project

Funding:
Alfred P. Sloan Foundation
(subcontract: Research Agreement)

Funding Period: 11/1/2019 to 11/15/2020
