Template Data Sharing Governance Tools Released

In order to maximize the interoperability of anonymized data and reduce the contractual barriers and administrative burden(s) of data sharing, the MRCT Center developed three harmonized governance tools as part of the PCORI Open Science Pilot Project.

The resulting tools, which include a Template Data Contributor Agreement (DCA), a Template Data Use Agreement (DUA), and a Template Data Sharing Section of an Informed Consent Form (ICF), are intended to ease the implementation of data sharing among organizations that fund clinical research.
