NDRIO Launches National Needs Assessment Survey

NDRIO Launches National Needs Assessment Survey

The New Digital Research Infrastructure Organization (NDRIO) is pleased to announce the launch of a nation-wide survey, as part of our Canadian Digital Research Infrastructure Needs Assessment. This survey is open to all Canadian researchers, regardless of their current use of digital infrastructure, and will be available until Monday, February 22.

From undergraduate students and early-stage researchers to established scholars, scientists and researchers – no matter the discipline – we hope to reach the broader Canadian research community to understand their unique, individual needs as relates to digital research infrastructure (DRI). While the survey is specifically targeted toward DRI end users, we welcome feedback from all members of the research community.

The survey takes about 20 minutes to complete, and will help inform our 2022-2025 Strategic Plan. Please take time to complete the survey and share it with other members of your research community.

Thank you again for your participation, as we work with our partners to harmonize and improve Canada’s DRI services and tools for Canadian researchers to support scientific excellence, academic research and innovation across disciplines.

If you have any questions about the survey, or our ongoing Needs Assessment consultation process, please contact us at
