Canadian Research Software Platforms

The table below is a partial list of Canadian research software platforms (RSPs) previously supported by CANARIE during its tenure as a research software funder, and that we have determined to be actively supported and/or developed. According to the Research Software Current State Assessment, Research Software (RS) has two types: 1). RS tools and 2). RSPs or RS services (variously referred to as virtual science labs, virtual research environments (VREs), or Science Gateways). Although the table lists only RSPs, most RS services can be accessed from the RSP link. The Alliance is working with its partners to create a comprehensive directory of Canadian research software platforms and services, and this list represents the start of that effort. 

 

If you have an active research software project and would like to have your details added to the list, or have corrections to the information in the table, please contact rs-lr@alliancecan.ca
