Provide and Use the Data
IRIS provides memberÂ institutions with university-specific reports based on their data, highlighting the impacts of their research efforts and investments.
RefineÂ the Data
IRIS creates a secure data enclaveÂ for the research community by collecting, integrating, warehousing, and making large-scale data accessible to researchers.
LeverageÂ the Data
IRIS provides policy makers with credible data on the value of research to address pressing social science and policy questions.
âThis groundbreaking project will allow research universities to better track and report the outcomes of many dimensions of the academic enterprise. Perhaps most importantly, the effort will apply the protocols and rigor of academic research to the work and outcomes of higher educationâand will do so in a manner consistent with the values of the academic (not commercial) sector.â

âIRIS data allow observational experiments that can directlyÂ test this people-centric model by tracking how scientific training affects career trajectories and returns to industry. Preliminary IRIS data indicate, for example, that a science doctorate improves a personâs chances of entering a high-tech industry, which will result in higher wages and greater productivity.â
