Benefits of using the STRIDES Initiative as a vehicle to access our partners include:

  • Professional services—Access to professional service consultations and technical support from the STRIDES Initiative partners.
  • Training—Access to training for researchers, data owners, and others at a discounted rate to help ensure optimal use of available tools and technologies.
  • Potential collaborative engagements—Opportunities to explore methods and approaches that may advance NIH’s biomedical research objectives (with scope and milestones of engagements agreed upon separately).
  • Discounts on STRIDES Initiative partner services—Favorable pricing on computing, storage, and related cloud services for NIH Institutes, Centers, and Offices (ICOs) and NIH-funded institutions.

At this time, the STRIDES Initiative supports programs/projects that want to prepare, migrate, upload, and compute data in the cloud. In the future, the ability to access data across NIH and NIH-funded institutions from various research domain repositories will become available.
