To support sustainable and effective research data stewardship in Canada, RDC is pleased to continue the discussion to build a National Data Services Framework (NDSF). The NDSF Summit is a forum where the Canadian research community can learn, collaborate, exchange ideas, and discuss common issues, with a goal of developing a shared understanding of the current data management landscape and recommendations for future initiatives.
The 2020 Summit will update the output of the 2019 Summit, the Kanata Declaration, working with the stakeholder community to provide additional details on the data management resources available to researchers throughout the research life cycle. The Summit will also deliver a set of desired outcomes:
- Consensus on what minimal requirements define a national data service (NDS);
- Consensus on what works best at the institutional, provincial, regional, national, and international levels;
- Consensus on existing Canadian national data services (NDSs), both machine and human services, that provide either models for, or operational examples of NDSs;
- Consensus on key gaps not articulated in either the Research Data Management Roadmap or Kanata Declaration;
- Consensus on priorities going forward.
The 2020 NDSF Summit outcomes will be distributed widely in the Canadian DRI ecosystem, and directly to Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) and the emerging national digital research infrastructure organization.
Please note: The program will be conducted in English.
