Canadian Digital Research Infrastructure Needs Assessment Survey


New Digital Research Infrastructure Organization (NDRIO)


Canadian Digital Research Infrastructure Needs Assessment Survey


NDRIO launched the first Canadian Digital Research Infrastructure Needs Assessment process to help identify and address digital research infrastructure (DRI) and service requirements for the future.

The purpose of this nation-wide exercise is two-fold:

  1. Prioritize and direct the development of tools and technologies that will support cutting-edge research in Canada;
  2. Determine and address Canadian researchers’ current and future needs related to a Digital Research Infrastructure (DRI) ecosystem.

Through this comprehensive consultation process, NDRIO will seek input from the Canadian research community to inform its 2021-2024 Strategic Plan supporting a single and unified vision of the highest DRI priorities.  

The Canadian Digital Research Infrastructure Needs Assessment survey is open to all Canadian researchers, regardless of their discipline, current use of DRI tools or research experience. Completion of the survey takes about 20 minutes, and will help inform NDRIO's 2022-25 Strategic Plan. The survey will be available until Monday, March 1.

Special Notes

Please note that research activities carried out in the context of COVID-19 need to adhere to the University of Guelph COVID-19 research principles, policies, guidelines and processes as they may be updated from time to time and communicated on the Office of Research web-page.


If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
