Boosting Canada's Digital Research Infrastructure

The 2018 Federal Budget announced $572 million in support of digital research infrastructure (DRI), with the commitment for continuing annual funding. The strategy for how these funds will be spent in the next five years is currently in development, with leadership from Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED), and a wide range of community stakeholders and organizations. This session will provide the latest update on the DRI strategy, with a focus on research data management (RDM), including: the outcomes of the 2019 National Data Services Framework Summit and related meetings; recently funded RDM software platforms; intersections with efforts to build a global open science framework; the Tri-Council Data Management Policy. The session will be designed to encourage interaction with the attendees.
