Compute Canada & CANARIE Response to TC3+ Consultation Paper: “Capitalizing on Big Data: Toward a Policy Framework for Advancing Digital Scholarship in Canada”
In October 2013, Canada’s federal research granting agencies — the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), and in collaboration with Genome Canada — joined forces to help address digital infrastructure challenges through the consultation document, Toward a Policy Framework for Advancing Digital Scholarship in Canada.
The agencies and the CFI are proposing a realignment of funding policies that will help promote excellence in data management practices in projects undertaken with agency/CFI support. Compute Canada and CANARIE submitted a joint response to this proposal in December 2013 and would like to share this response with the community. To read the joint submission, click here.
