SPROUT: A Comprehensive Cloud Platform for Social Policy Research

In this three-minute video, John Diamond, MDRC’s Director of Knowledge Management and Institutional Learning, describes SPROUT, the world’s first comprehensive cloud platform for social policy research. Developed by MDRC, the platform offers researchers, federal agencies, service providers, and other organizations new ways to work together to tackle challenges of social policy and practice. SPROUT provides organizations with a place to securely store, manage, and analyze their data, all while controlling what data—if any—should be shared with external partners. MDRC is making SPROUT available at near cost to social and educational policy researchers, agencies, and nonprofit organizations around the country, regardless of their affiliation with MDRC.
