Coming up: The 2019 IRIS Summit
Please join us for the 2019 summit, which will integrate discussions on data products that tell the story of academia’s public value, research questions, and using and improving the IRIS data infrastructure. The summit will take place Sept. 26-27 in Ann Arbor.
Provide and Use the Data
IRIS provides member institutions with university-specific reports based on their data, highlighting the impacts of their research efforts and investments.
Refine the Data
IRIS creates a secure data enclave for the research community by collecting, integrating, warehousing, and making large-scale data accessible to researchers.
Leverage the Data
IRIS provides policy makers with credible data on the value of research to address pressing social science and policy questions.

“My congressional representative asked me about output measures of Ohio State research. Was that research making an impact and how did we measure it? … I find the IRIS data increasingly useful for discussions about the value of research.”
—CAROLINE C. WHITACRE, VP FOR RESEARCH, OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY
“AAU universities conduct a majority of the federally funded university research, contributing to U.S. economic competitiveness, health, and national security. Now, with the help of IRIS, universities can better understand and demonstrate the impacts of research to their students, local community, and nation.”
– MARY SUE COLEMAN, PRESIDENT, ASSOCIATION OF AMERICAN UNIVERSITIES
