Portage Training Expert Group – About Us

The primary purpose of the Training Expert Group (TEG) is to provide Portage with a high-level perspective on a national RDM training roadmap that identifies the skill development needs of stakeholders in the Canadian research community, especially related to the provision or use of RDM services and infrastructure.
