The purpose of DARE UK
DARE UK aims to design and deliver a UK data research infrastructure that is joined-up, demonstrates trustworthiness and supports research at scale. DARE UK is a multi-phase programme, which was established by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI). Phase 1: Design and Dialogue of DARE UK is being led by Health Data Research UK (HDR UK) and ADR UK (Administrative Data Research UK).
Dare UK aims to:
- Design and deliver a novel and innovative UK-wide data research infrastructure that is coordinated, demonstrates trustworthiness and supports research at scale for the public good.
- Establish the next generation of trusted research environments (TREs) that will enable fast, safe and efficient sharing, linkage and advanced analysis of data where it is legal and ethical to do so.
- Enable UK researchers and innovators to securely and efficiently harness the full power of linked datasets, modern digital platforms, tools, techniques and skills.
- Enable research and analysis on a broad range of potentially sensitive data from across the UK research and innovation spectrum.
The scope of DARE UK includes all research conducted by UKRI research councils that uses or anticipates the use of sensitive data from different research disciplines and from across different sectors. The DARE UK programme is being delivered in an open and inclusive manner, with the involvement of researchers, technologists and the public embedded throughout.
