Join us June 7–11 for RDM Week!

With the release of the Tri-Agency RDM Policy comes new requirements for researchers around the planning and sharing of research data. RDM Week will offer ‘lunch and learn’ sessions throughout the week on important topics in research data management. These sessions will introduce researchers to information, tools, and resources that will help them prepare for the ever-evolving RDM landscape in Canada and for managing their data day-to-day. More information and registration links below.


Session #1: Data Management Planning 101

Monday, June 7th: 12:30pm – 1:15pm

A data management plan (or DMP) is a formal plan that describes how research data are managed throughout the lifecycle of a research project.
