The UWindsor Research Data Management Steering Committee invites the campus community to provide feedback on the current draft of its Institutional Research Data Management Strategy.
The strategy is a requirement of the Tri-Agency’s 2021 Research Data Management Policy which requires institutions who receive CIHR, NSERC, or SSHRC funds to create and share its strategy by March 2023.
The steering committee is a collaboration between the Leddy Library, the Office of Research and Innovation Services, Information Technology Services, and the Research Ethics Board, in consultation with the University of Windsor Research Data Management Faculty Advisory Group and other key campus stakeholders, particularly Indigenous scholars.
This institutional strategy is intended to share strengths, priorities, and commitment to research data management. It outlines current and planned capacity for research data management at the University of Windsor and underscores key strategic areas for future consideration, including:
- Streamlining service support for research data management
- Research data security
- Sovereignty and research data management with First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people and communities
- Training and development
Development of a strategy is the first step in meeting the Tri-Agency’s current requirements. The consultation process will identify action items to support its successful implementation, including identifying areas requiring resource investments and areas of shared responsibility.
The strategy will evolve over time to be responsive to the needs of the research community and developments in the national research data ecosystem. Campus community feedback will inform this evolution and future implementation activities during the move towards implementing scalable infrastructure, services, and practices.
