Queen's Wins Grant From Digital Research Alliance of Canada
A team at Queen’s University was named among the 18 winners of a grant of up to $50,000 CAD per recipient from the Digital Research Alliance of Canada (the Alliance) on April 11, 2022.
The Alliance’s Data Champions Pilot Project aims to promote a shift in data culture within the Canadian Digital Research Infrastructure (DRI) ecosystem by promoting sound research data management (RDM).
Queen's Data Champions (qDC) team strives to make research data management at Queen’s a national example of wise RDM practice. qDC will be engaging the research community through needs assessment activities to build knowledge and awareness of the recently launched Research Data Management Institutional Strategy. In the coming months, the qDC team will be launching a website to support the services and events offered.
Queen's University Library (QUL) Research Data Librarians Alicia Cappello and Meghan Goodchild, both members of the qDC team were delighted with the announcement: “We are thrilled to receive funding from the Alliance to support this cross-campus collaboration in promoting wise RDM practices. As librarians supporting RDM outreach and infrastructure, we believe the Empower RDM program will engage with the community to better understand current needs, develop awareness and training resources, and build a robust community of practice that will drive culture change on campus and beyond.”
