The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) has announced the renewal of the Research Data Management Capacity Building Initiative. This initiative aims to continue helping the Canadian social sciences and humanities research community better understand data management, and incorporate data management considerations into research practices.
The initiative will fund at least 10 meritorious Connection Grants proposals per competition for the November 2019, February, May and August 2020 cycles, to support the research community’s development, adoption and dissemination of research data management standards, practices, tools and skills appropriate to their field.
Applications to this initiative will be subject to the same evaluation criteria common to all other Connection Grants. However, applicants must show how their project addresses the initiative’s specific goals.
