Publication of Public Consultation Summary
From June to September 2018, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) (the agencies) held an online consultation on the draft Tri-Agency Research Data Management Policy.
This report summarizes the consultation feedback and, where warranted, clarifies the framing, scope and aims of the policy.
The agencies are making final revisions to the policy based on this consultation and other feedback. With an anticipated release in Spring 2020, the new policy will include a phased-in implementation aligned with the state of readiness of the Canadian research community.
Extension: Connection Grants – Research Data Management Capacity Building Initiative
To help the Canadian social sciences and humanities research community better understand data management and incorporate data management considerations into research practices, SSHRC’s Research Data Management Capacity Building Initiative offers Connection Grants to support the research community’s development, adoption and dissemination of research data management standards, practices, tools and skills appropriate to their field.
SSHRC will fund at least 10 meritorious proposals per competition.
SSHRC is accepting applications for the Research Data Management Capacity Building Initiative at the following Connection Grants deadlines:
· February 1, 2020
