The new policy announced by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) places a strong emphasis on the sharing of scientific data in an effort to expedite the translation of research results into knowledge, products, and procedures to improve human health. It will go into effect in January 2023.
The new guidelines apply to all awards that generate scientific data regardless of funding mechanism. This includes grants, subgrants, contracts, subcontracts, and other transaction authority agreements.
The Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) has selected the winners of fourteen awards that recognize exceptional researchers, scholars, innovators, students, and administrators, as a part of the annual Discovery and Innovation awards program.
