Canada’s National Research and Education Network (CANARIE) has awarded a total of up to $3.2 million to nine research teams to develop research data management software tools. The new funding is part of the Government of Canada’s $105-million investment supporting CANARIE, which operates an ultra-high-speed network connecting researchers, through its 2015-2020 mandate. The teams will develop software components and tools that enable Canadian researchers to adopt best practices in managing various types of research data, including in the areas of human health genomics, geospatial studies and brain disorders. Effective research data management practices maximize investments in science and can accelerate discovery by simplifying access to data generated from scientific research, said Mark Wolff, chief technology officer at CANARIE. Two of the nine teams are based at University of Toronto, and one team each at University of Prince Edward Island, McGill University, University of Saskatchewan, University of British Columbia and University of Victoria. The other two teams are from the Computer Research Institute of Montréal and the Ontario Brain Institute.
