Information Sessions & Town Halls on RDM Strategy



In March 2021, the Tri-Agency launched a Research Data Management (RDM) Policy with the objectives of promoting RDM and data stewardship practices among Canadian researchers. The Policy requires each post-secondary institution and research hospital eligible to administer Tri-Agency funds to create and publicly post an institutional RDM strategy by March 1st, 2023. The Research Data Management Working Group is leading this effort in developing the McGill RDM Strategy. 

This RDM strategy will lay the groundwork for a meaningful and robust RDM future at McGill by focusing on the needs and priorities of our research community. Your input and suggestions will help us in creating an effective RDM strategy to ensure research excellence at McGill.
