​New NSF grant will create mosaic of data on the impact of university research

IRIS recently received a $2 million, three-year award from the NSF that will create a mosaic of linked data resources that will shed new light on the impacts of university-based research.

Under the auspices of the National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics (NCSES), the funding will allow IRIS to link its unique UMETRICS dataset to several existing data resources. Read the full announcement at https://myumi.ch/erpD4

 

IRIS member universities submit data to the institute and receive back reports focused on institutional research, governmental relations, and public communications.

IRIS produces interactive reports to illuminate the impact of universities’ research activities on the economy and career pathways of employees.

The IRIS dataset is a valuable asset for researchers in a variety of disciplines, capturing detailed data from nearly 400,000 awards representing more than 41% of U.S. total R & D spending at univerisities.
