New digital technologies are creating massive quantities of data at an explosive rate, which is having a profound impact on the capacity of Canadian researchers to generate and contribute research that will be critical to Canada’s future. To embrace this new world of possibility, Canada must build and sustain a strong and vibrant digital research infrastructure (DRI) ecosystem.
The Digital Research Alliance of Canada serves Canadian researchers, with the objective of advancing Canada’s position as a leader in the knowledge economy on the international stage. By integrating, championing and funding the infrastructure and activities required for advanced research computing (ARC), research data management (RDM) and research software (RS), we provide the platform for the research community to access tools and services faster than ever before.
We have an ambitious mandate — to transform how research across all academic disciplines is organized, managed, stored and used. We work with other ecosystem partners and stakeholders across the country to help provide Canadian researchers with the support they need for leading-edge research excellence, research, innovation and advancement across all disciplines.
The Alliance is a non-profit organization funded by the Government of Canada.
