Data Sharing / Use Agreements

University Research Administration requires and reviews Data Use Agreements (DUAs) both for data being provided to UChicago research team by third parties and for data being shared by UChicago research team with third parties -- University Research Administration has templates for creating a DUA if data will be shared with a third party including de-identified data.

Data Use Agreements (DUAs) are routed through University Research Administration for confirmation that the terms of the agreement do not restrict creation and dissemination/publication of knowledge, or contain other unacceptable terms.  Researchers do not sign a Data Use Agreement or Restricted Data License -- those agreements must be signed by the University's authorized official.  Third party data providers who share data with a UChicago research team should use their data use agreement templates.  Data being shared by UChicago research team with third parties ought to use the templates available at https://ura.uchicago.edu/page/data-sharing-agreements
