Visualization of university research spending for a specific industry sector.

A new round of Vendor Profile Reports are on their way to IRIS members, showing data such as the number of minority- or woman-owned businesses with research contracts, details on industries receiving research contracts down to the 4-digit NAICS code, county-level location information on concentration of companies with research contracts, wage and size comparisons between research contractors and industry national averages, and more.

For the first time, we’re including a press release template to hopefully spread the word about the economic and societal effects of university research spending.

IRIS generates reports by linking administrative data from member universities to public and restricted datasets. For more on our reports, see

IRIS members receive these reports, and also free access to the underlying data for researchers on their campuses. For more on membership:
