Data is foundational to research -- enabling the exploration of patterns, insights, and correlations that drive innovation and informed decision-making. Researchers know that working with data can present regulatory, technical, methodological, and resource-related obstacles that can hinder progress.  

OR&I, in collaboration with many institutional partners, strives to break down these barriers by enabling access to tools, information, resources, and expertise.
