Consultation - Digital Research Infrastructure (DRI) Contribution Program


Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada


Further consultations are being held towards implementation of the Data Research Infrastructure (DRI) Contribution Program with approved funding from the federal government of up to $375 million. This program will be governed by a not for profit organization that will coordinate funding and strategic directions for national activities related to:  research data management; advanced research computing, and research software.

Building on the feedback received during the development of the proposal in the spring and the face-to-face sessions held in September and October, these virtual sessions will gather additional input and comment from the community on governance issues including membership and board composition.
