Research Data Management

Research data refers to data that are used as primary sources to support technical or scientific enquiry, research, scholarship, or artistic activity, and that are used as evidence in the research process and/or are commonly accepted in the research community as necessary to validate research findings and results. Research data may be experimental data, observational data, operational data, third party data, public sector data, monitoring data, processed data, or repurposed data.

Centennial is developing an institution-wide compliance strategy to the federal government’s introduction of the Tri-Agency Research Data Management Policy, which provides guidelines for managing research data throughout its lifecycle.

Intellectual Property

Intellectual Property (IP) means any form of knowledge or expression created by human intellect that can be owned by a person or group. It includes, but is not limited to, inventions, discoveries, know-how, show-how, processes, unique materials, copyrightable works, original data and other creative works which have value.

In our federally funded, externally partnered Applied Research engagements, Centennial College retains the rights to IP creation during research strictly for teaching purposes only, and otherwise assigns the created IP back to the industry partner.
