NEWARK, NJ, December 9, 2022 – Edge has partnered with IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, to announce their first collective milestone with the sale of an institutional subscription of IEEE DataPort to Dartmouth College. Researchers at Dartmouth College selected IEEE DataPort as their unified data and collaboration platform which researchers can leverage to efficiently store, share, access, and manage research data, accelerating institutional research efforts for data management and storage.
The initiative is a collaborative effort to offer increased awareness of institutional subscriptions to IEEE DataPort — a web-based, cloud services platform supporting the data-related needs of the global technical community — making it available to academic, government, and not-for-profit institutions across the United States.
“Edge is pleased to have the opportunity to work with IEEE in bringing IEEE DataPort to researchers at Dartmouth College. As research in nearly all domains becomes more data intensive, providing institutions with the ability to store, share, access, and manage high quality data is critical. The partnership between Edge and IEEE facilitates that opportunity and advances the mission of EdgeDiscovery, a research and discovery framework providing access to leading-edge technology to support collaborative research and educational opportunities,” said Dr. Forough Ghahramani, Assistant Vice President for Research, Innovation, and Sponsored Programs at Edge.
With IEEE DataPort, researchers at subscribing institutions gain access to the more than 3,800 research datasets available on the platform and the ability to collaborate with more than three million global IEEE users. The platform also enables institutions to meet funding agency requirements for the use of and sharing of data.
“IEEE welcomes the opportunity to offer all members of Dartmouth College the ability to leverage the many benefits of IEEE DataPort. Dartmouth College conducts extremely valuable research and by sharing their research data on IEEE DataPort, Dartmouth will gain global exposure for their research efforts and help researchers around the globe,” said Melissa Handa, Senior Program Manager, IEEE DataPort.
