Research Analytics Summit 2024

Document Type



The use of data and analytics in the field of research administration remains in explorations stages for many, if not most, higher education institutions. That is evidenced not only by the great demand and attendance seen for such sessions at NCURA’s Annual Meetings in 2022 and 2023, but also via prior research. This presentation will highlight the efforts implementing data-informed decision making based on research administration metrics, analytics, and dashboard examples. Emphasis will be placed on that you can’t manage what you can’t measure. The data analytics team at Emory supports all visions of our research administration leadership. Challenges, pain points, and lessons learned will be shared. Reasons for implementing collecting data and metrics will be shown. These include improving operational efficiencies, stakeholder satisfaction (e.g., faculty), as well as providing analytical insights to decision makers. The benefits of such initiatives will also be depicted with examples of successfully implemented metrics and analytics, including dashboard examples.
