Policy & Guideline

NMRC Research Data Governance and Sharing Framework
The sharing of research data promotes open scientific inquiry that expedites the translation of research findings into knowledge and applications, to improve human health and healthcare. It promotes novel research that may not have been envisioned by the original researchers, allows synergies from multiple data sources, and enables the sharing of unique data that cannot be easily replicated (such as studies on unique populations). Research data sharing would thus bring about greater returns from the public investment in research.
NMRC has developed a Framework for Research Data Governance and Sharing to cover broad principles on research data sharing. The Framework requires NMRC-funded projects to share final research data for projects seeking funding of at least $250,000 of direct cost, and applies to application submitted to NMRC on or after 1 Jan 2024.

Please see the Research Data Governance and Sharing Framework document for details.
