RDM: CANARIE Awards $2M to Research Teams to Extend the Interoperability of Canadian Research Data with National and Global Systems

From a CANARIE Announcement:

CANARIE announced today the selection of four successful projects from its recent Research Data Management funding call. This funding will enable research teams to work toward greater interoperability and integration of data platforms, repositories, and services within Canadian and global digital research infrastructures. The projects also align with the National Data Services Framework and the FAIR principles: a set of internationally recognized guiding principles to make data findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable.


Each of the four selected projects will:

  • align existing systems with national and international RDM best practices;
  • enhance existing repositories and systems to increase interoperability, and facilitate development of a national federated platform; and
  • integrate five or more existing but non-interoperable repositories/systems.

This funding is part of the Government of Canada’s $137 million investment supporting CANARIE’s 2020-24 mandate.
