December 16, 2013 is the final day for comments on the Tri-Council paper “Capitalizing on Big Data: Toward a Policy Framework for Advancing Digital Scholarship in Canada
The potential of data-intensive research is progressively and rapidly outstripping our ability to manage and to grow the digital ecosystem required to meet 21st century needs. Canada’s research funding agencies, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) — collectively the TC3+, in collaboration with Genome Canada — have joined forces to address this challenge. Through the attached consultation document, they are proposing a collective realignment of agency funding policies regarding management of data obtained through projects undertaken with agency funds.
