Membership

Benefits of Membership

Joining IRIS will allow your institution to lead the public discussion about research and its value at all levels. You will have access to science-based data products designed to credibly support outreach and informed decision-making.

IRIS member universities will receive

  • Campus-level reports that synthesize, summarize and provide visualizations of data in interactive reports
  • Aggregate indicators of the national impact of university research
  • A seat at the table to build future products and initiatives
  • Secure access to IRIS data for research use by their students and faculty

IRIS member universities will contribute

  • Annual submissions of their administrative data
  • A modest annual fee to ensure IRIS permanence and independence

 

Reports Highlight Impacts of Research Investments

Each participating institution receives regular reports that highlight the local, state and national effects of their research spending. Those reports feature analyses, maps, and tables, including:

  • Direct and indirect cost expenditures on federal research awards, in total and by agency
  • Counts of all staff who are supported on federal research projects, including faculty, staff, scientists, students, and clinicians, in total and by agency
  • Tabular analyses of vendor and sub-award expenditures on federal research projects, by agency, industry category and county
  • Benchmarks relative to aggregate data from all participating institutions

As IRIS researchers develop new findings from ongoing research, the Institute will work with participating research institutions to develop additional products. Product development will proceed in close interaction with representatives drawn from the Senior Research Officers and Government Relations Officers of member institutions.
