The process for transferring data for a single specific project follows the same process of transfer as a standard data transfer except it is protected from any other linkages outside of the specific named project. Data partners transfer data under a Data Sharing Agreement to the NB-IRDT platform where it is linked to a single project. Only the variables required for the project may be transferred. The data is not available for any other current or future research. Once the project is complete, the data is returned to the data partner.
Data is only accessed by researchers with approved research projects. To see the process of applying for a research project, see our data access application process
There are a few steps involved in the data transfer. The below links provide information on this process or a contact to help you through the process.
