RI Research Hub

The RI Research Hub is a collaborative center for research that provides the capacity and expertise needed to investigate important questions and work with the shared data in the RI Data Hub. With guidance from the Advisory Council, the RI Research Hub follows a prioritized research agenda that will address our state’s issues and help policy makers and practitioners understand our state’s shared data.




The RI Data Sharing Project works with the American Institutes for Research (air.org) and the College and University Research Collaborative (collaborativeri.org) to facilitate objective, non-partisan research and to make findings and research results available to leaders and policy makers in Rhode Island.

The RI Research Hub is a truly collaborative concept, and it relies heavily on the engagement and involvement of local partners and stakeholders in order to produce actionable research, drive improvements, and share the learnings from our state’s data.
