Three UBC Teams Awarded Funding for Research Data Management Initiatives through Data Champions Pilot Project

Eighteen teams and individuals will receive up to $50,000 CAD to develop activities at the local, regional and/​or national level that advance awareness, understanding, development and adoption of research data management (RDM) tools, best practices and resources in Canada through the Data Champions Pilot Project Call from the Digital Research Alliance of Canada.

Three teams from UBC were successful in their applications that align with the pilot's aims to promote a shift in data culture within the Canadian digital research infrastructure ecosystem by promoting sound RDM practices.
