Tri-Agency Consultations

The consulation will focus on three priorities:

  • A new Tri-Agency Research Fund;
  • Strengthening equity, diversity and inclusion in research; and
  • Support for early career researchers. 

An online consultation is open to all Canadians until August 27, 2018. 

Draft Tri-Agency Research Data Management Policy

The three federal research funding agencies have developed a draft Tri-Agency Research Data Management Policy, which aims to support Canadian research excellence by fostering sound digital data management and data stewardship practices.

The draft policy includes suggested requirements related to three primary areas:

  • Institutional data management strategies;
  • Researcher data management plans;
  • Data deposit.

The agencies have also developed a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) resource, which includes information about data management, background on tri-agency research data management policy development, and guidance on complying with the proposed requirements.

The agencies will be accepting feedback on the draft policy until August 31, 2018. Feedback can be sent electronically to any of the following email addresses:

SSHRC: ResearchData-Donneesderecherche@sshrc-crsh.gc.ca 
NSERC: ResearchData-Donneesderecherche@nserc-crsng.gc.ca
CIHR: ResearchData-Donneesderecherche@cihr-irsc.gc.ca

The feedback period will run until August 31, 2018.
