CANARIE:  Call for Research Data Management Software

The objective of the Call is to support 1) the development of software tools, 2) a strong research data management (RDM) ecosystem in Canada.

Funding is provided for the development of RDM software that encourages the adoption of RDM best practices, specifically the FAIR Principles, which state that research data should be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable.

Eight themes were identified as priority areas for the development of software tools:

.  Enriching (Meta)Data and Discovery
.  Federated Repositories/Interoperability
.  Domain-specific Repositories
.  Data Deposit and Curation
.  Preservation
.  Persistent IDs/Citability
.  Data Access and Analytics
.  Data Privacy and Security

The tools developed through this Call are intended to enable compliance with evolving policy guidelines, and international data management standards.
