News Release from CANARIE:
CANARIE, a vital component of Canada’s digital research infrastructure ecosystem supporting research, education and innovation, today announced $2M in funding to support the Canadian Association of Research Libraries’ (CARL) Portage Network. CARL Portage is a national, library-based research data management (RDM) network that fosters initiatives to build capacity and to coordinate activities in research data management.
The ability to manage and reuse research data helps accelerate discovery, allows for reproducibility of scientific results, and maximizes return on investment of research funding. Research data management best practices help ensure the accessibility and protection of data during the research lifecycle and beyond, and help meet growing requirements of research ethics and reproducibility, along with evolving funder policies. This funding broadens the functionality of current Portage services and tools and adds capacity to national RDM resources.
