What is the issue?

Earlier this year Canada’s Tri-Agencies launched a consultation on a new draft Data Management Policy, which will impact any organization receiving funds from the agencies.

This is good news for research and sharing the data from the research enterprise, but it means institutions need to understand the draft’s impacts, including for their industry partners, and how best to respond.

This emerging policy framework is accompanied by an increasing tendency for other funders and journal publishers to require the deposit of data and other outputs with publications.

What is the event?

Given this emerging landscape, Research Data Canada is pleased to be working with Colleges and Institutes Canada, and Centennial College to provide a context for discussion.

This research data management-focused one-day workshop is tailored for colleges, institutes, and polytechnics in Canada. It’s key goal? It is to review the draft Tri-Council research data management policy specifically, and facilitate the development of individual institutions’ approaches to the policy and research data management generally. The Summit will also include:

  • Updates on other issues in the digital research infrastructure file such as:
    • Cybersecurity and;
    • intellectual property.

Who should attend?

This event is for senior administrators in applied research offices, computing/IT, libraries and associated staff.
