Results of the NDRIO-Portage COVID-19 Data Curation Funding Call
Portage is pleased to announce the results of the NDRIO-Portage COVID-19 Data Curation Funding Call to support the curation of Canadian research data related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Launched in April 2021, this initiative dedicated $336,000 in federal funding to eligible research projects for the stewardship and curation of research data between July 2021 and March 31, 2022.
Following a competitive adjudication process, 11 research projects were selected to receive funding to a maximum of $42,000 each for data stewardship and curation according to the scope and defined needs of each project. Funding recipients will additionally receive support from Portage in the form of a consultation with the Data Curation Team, with the possibility of group or individual training activities during the course of the project. These funds and support will help to ensure that valuable research data remain accessible and reusable into the future.
Portage looks forward to working with the recipients and wishes to thank all those who applied, as well as those who lent their time and expertise to serve on the adjudication committee.
