Coordinated by the Office of Data Science Strategy at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the goal of the Generalist Repository Ecosystem Initiative (GREI) is to expand its data ecosystem into additional repositories so that researchers can more easily and effectively find and share data from studies funded by the NIH. The Harvard Dataverse is one of six data repositories collaborating with the NIH on this initiative.
