Research Data Canada
Research Data Canada is a collaborative effort to address the challenges and issues surrounding the access and preservation of data arising from Canadian research.
The challenges surrounding research data access and preservation must be addressed collectively from a national perspective with the participation of all parts of the research community, including researchers themselves who create and use this data.
The membership of RDC comprises a wide variety of individuals and stakeholder organizations, all of whom have an interest in and role to play in ensuring that the infrastructure, processes, and support are in place to ensure research data in Canada is both accessible and preserved. Members include organizations in broad-band networking, research funding agencies, universities, NGOs, government research organizations, and research libraries.
