Last comments


David Baker is co-founder and Executive Director of CASRAI. He has over twenty years of experience in research administration and management. He came to the research domain via a tortured path that included directing television commercials, writing screenplays, managing a health research charity and administering databases. His research administration roles have included the design and implementation of grants management databases and software systems as well as the provision of senior advisory services to national and regional governments and foundation funding organizations. He has a strong commitment to, and involvement in, international not-for-profit initiatives on research data standards and systems-interoperability. He is based in Ottawa, Canada. CASRAI is designed to function as a component in the broader national/international strategy on research administration that countries need to have if information on research and innovation is to be able to cross the boundaries between organizations, disciplines and nations
