Description

CANARIE, a vital component of Canada’s digital research infrastructure (DRI) ecosystem supporting research, education and innovation, has announced two separate Calls for Proposals to fund software that supports the complete research workflow: data acquisition, storage, computation/processing, visualization, and data management.

The CANARIE funding announcement aims to strengthen Canadian leadership in research in two ways: by funding software development aimed at the reuse of existing research software platforms and by facilitating the reuse and management of research data.

  • Research Software Program funding will support research teams who will adapt existing research platforms for re-use by new research teams.
  • Research Data Management (RDM) Program funding will support collaborative interoperability and integration of data repositories and systems within Canadian and global digital research infrastructures (DRI).

Canadian research teams are invited to apply to one or both funding calls. 

CANARIE will host two information webinars for each call to answer questions from applicants. Register for the webinar of your choice using the links below.
