The Institutional Research Data Lifecycle – A Researcher’s Gauge of Frustration

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Institutions are integral in the support of the scientific process. They establish the policy and procedure for researchers to follow ensuring quality and integrity across the institution. They bear the risk and impact when research does not stand up under scrutiny, or data are improperly handled or used in research.

Institutions are challenged with meeting the needs of a researcher while at the same time managing the infrastructure and polices that protect the institution’s integrity.

Examples of Researcher Frustration and Institutional Risk:
• A researcher with a 6-month grant where the institutional steps to download the needed data were not completed until the 7th month.
• A researcher who needs a dataset with compliance and regulations requirements that add significant risk to the institution cyber-infrastructure resulting in not accepting a grant because the capacity to comply was not in place.

In this session, we invite the institution community and the greater stakeholder community to discuss the research data lifecycle, how institutions are helping researchers with data challenges, and the numerous compliance requirements that are levied by institutions on researchers, and how we can make a more streamline process for the scientific process.
