Doing research well is difficult
Research-intensive institutions house a great deal of valuable research and innovation. Yet, because of their openness and collaboration, they have become ‘soft targets’ for IP theft. The management and sharing of research data poses many risks and challenges for these institutions, Principal Investigators, their teams, research participants, external collaborators, legal services, research librarians, and research ethics boards. Current solutions and practices are fragmented and inadequate, imposing significant operational inefficiencies.

Coordinate collaborative efforts for effective data management
Principal Investigators must put forward Data Management Plans (DMPs) in support of sensitive research activities. These DMPs must be reviewed and approved by Research Ethics Boards (REBs) and may have input from Research Legal Services (RLS), Librarian staff, and other administrators.
This collaboration must be effectively coordinated to reduce operational inefficiencies.
Flexible agreement management for research data sharing and consent forms
Data Management Plans are often accompanied by the establishment of data-sharing agreements for external collaborators, consent forms for research participants, NDAs, and other tailored agreements.
A flexible agreement management protocol with eSigning capabilities is necessary to reduce the overhead of these important activities on researchers and their teams.
Mitigate reputational risks in research through effective data security and access management
Principal Investigators also have to manage access to their research data in compliance with their Data Management Plans.
The ability to securely store, and tailor access to research data for each team member and collaborator is increasingly important to secure grant funding.
