CARL Portage is pleased to share the first of a series of Insights Reports, examining resource allocations for research data management in Canadian research institutions. This first report examines institutional budgets, policies, and organizational structures currently being leveraged for developing RDM capacity.
Insights Reports are produced by Portage’s Research Intelligence Expert Group and provide in-depth analysis of topics covered in last year’s survey evaluating the efforts of Canadian research institutions in developing and allocating human, organizational, infrastructure, and fiscal resources for research data management on their campuses.
