Submitting a Data-set Proposal

In order to track and support each partner’s data collection efforts, we are asking teams/partners to fill out the following form before they begin collecting data-sets. This will allow us to coordinate resources and support, help partner teams develop robust data-sets, and provide teams with the appropriate data templates for their data-set. Once you have filled out and submitted the following form, we will email the address you list below and provide your team with the necessary templates to compose the data-set that you propose.

If you are still unsure about how to plan or assemble a data-set, check out our comprehensive Data Submission Tutorial
