FY2021 Derivative Datasets LDRD Report


In this pilot project, the feasibility around the creation, management, and deployment of derivative datasets as a potential new class of intellectual property was explored. The objective of these derivative datasets was to address environmental, industrial, and commercial challenges in a novel way that could provide additional impact based on the research performed at PNNL. As a result of efforts in FY2021, two new derivative datasets were created using newly created code that would enable the facile creation of additional derivative datasets of varying complexity and integration from pre-existing and published originating datasets. In addition, the process workflows were documented, detailing how the creation, management, and deployment of the derivative datasets could integrate with existing processes within PNNL. Finally, exploratory interviews with industry allowed for the scoping of future collaboration and commercialization opportunities around derivative datasets.
