September 6, 2018 – Portage is currently seeking expressions of interest to join its Research Intelligence Expert Group (RIEG). The objective of REIG is to provide Portage with intelligence on research data management (RDM) in Canada.
RIEG members will identify and work to address knowledge gaps in a variety of RDM related topics. Members will work closely with other Portage groups and provide oversight of targeted studies that gather supporting evidence. We are seeking volunteers from both the library and broader research community (e.g. data managers, curators, researchers) who can contribute their in-depth expertise in various fields of research.
If you would like to join RIEG or to learn more, please contact Dylanne Dearborn (firstname.lastname@example.org) (Chair of RIEG) and Jeff Moon (email@example.com) (Portage Director) with a brief expression of interest. Submission deadline is September 21st, 2018.
