Collaborating for the future of Canada’s Digital Research Infrastructure

This site is a collaboration tool for the DRI community as we formalize the governance and structure of the new organization funded by the Ministry of Innovation, Science, and Economic Development under their DRI Contribution Program. The main steps in this process include the legal incorporation of a numbered, not-for-profit organization by an initial applicant board, community consultations on the future structure and governance of the new organization, and a first annual general meeting to approve bylaws and elect an inaugural board.  The purpose of the new organization is to coordinate and fund activities in Advanced Research Computing (ARC), Data Management (DM), and Research Software (RS) to ensure that Canada’s researchers have equitable access to the necessary infrastructure and tools to support research across all disciplines.

Ce site est l’outil de collaboration de la communauté INR (infrastructure numérique de recherche) lors de la formalisation de la gouvernance et de la structure de la nouvelle organisation subventionnée le ministère d’Innovation, Sciences et Développement économique par le Programme de contributions pour l’INR.  Les étapes principales comprennent l’incorporation d’une société numérotée à but non-lucratif par un conseil d’administration provisoire, des consultations avec la communauté sur la structure et la gouvernance futures de la nouvelle organisation, et une première assemblée générale annuelle visant l’approbation des statuts et règlements et l’élection d’un conseil d’administration inaugural.  La mission de la nouvelle organisation est de coordonner et subventionner des activités en calcul informatique de pointe pour la recherche (CIP), gestion des données (GD), et logiciels de recherche (LR), afin d’assurer un accès équitable à tous les chercheurs canadiens à l’infrastructure et les outils qui soutiennent la recherche dans toutes les disciplines.
