Data Futures

Funding Annoucement: Data Futures with photographs of Marjorie Mitchell, Mathew Vis-Dunbar, and Nick Rochlin

Faculty, staff, and student partners from UBC Okanagan Library and UBC Advanced Research Computing (ARC) were awarded a Data Champion grant from the Digital Research Alliance of Canada for their project, Data Futures.

Data Futures centres on the effective management—collection, handling, and dissemination—of research data in graduate research labs and addresses issues of turning research data management (RDM) principles into effective practices catered to specific disciplines.

This work will contribute to normalizing strong and equitable RDM practices for the next generation of researchers and will offer a scalable model for RDM training through the dissemination of open, adaptable materials.

Partners on the grant include Librarians Mathew Vis-Dunbar and Marjorie Mitchell, ARC RDM specialist Nick Rochlin, Drs. Heather GainforthJason PitherFiona McDonald, and Emily Murphy, and graduate students Hanna Paul and Liam Johnson.
