Since its establishment with CARL in 2015, Portage has been committed to fostering a national network of data stewardship supporting research data management infrastructure, services, and professionals. The Portage Network of Experts is critical in developing resources, expert advice, and practical help to assist with the management of research data at every stage of the data lifecycle. Our experts include librarians, data management professionals, institutional research officers, ethics officers, and members of government and non-governmental organizations from across Canada.
Expert and Working Groups are ongoing groups responsible for particular stages related to the RDM life cycle. Current Groups include:
- Data Management Planning
- Data Repositories
- Dataverse North
- Discovery and Metadata
- Research Intelligence
- Sensitive Data
Portage is always looking for new members to join our Network of Experts. To join an Expert or Working Group, please complete the Portage Expression of Interest Form.
