Description: Following the release of the tri-agency research data management policy in March 2021, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) is pleased to announce the extension 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 2021, February, May and August 2022 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.

This initiative aims to provide post-secondary institutions with resources enabling them to meet the requirements of the three federal granting agencies in terms of research data management.
