Portage DMP Expert Group – About us

The main purpose of the DMP Expert Group (DMPEG) is to guide the development of Portage’s national DMP platform, DMP Assistant (view Terms of Reference). The group created the Portage General Stewardship Template for the DMP Assistant as well as the guidance text to the template questions. The group will continue to advance Portage’s national DMP service objectives, which are:

  1. To provide tools that support best practices in research data stewardship and that promote a strong data culture in Canada;
  2. To facilitate the sharing of research administrative information across research organizations and agencies;
  3. To improve coordination among local and national research service organizations; and
  4. To reduce administrative burden on researchers.
