Event Description

You are invited to a national conversation focused on building a robust, sustainable, and effective research data management ecosystem.


The 4th National Data Services Framework (NDSF) Summit is a forum where the Canadian research community can learn, collaborate, exchange ideas, and discuss common issues, with a goal of developing a shared understanding of the current data management landscape and recommendations for future initiatives.


Who should attend?

The NDSF Summit is targeted at all levels of participants in the research ecosystem, including:

  • researchers
  • infrastructure providers
  • funders
  • publishers
  • librarians
  • research service providers
  • senior administrators


The 2021 Summit will use small group discussions as the foundation, and will focus on:

  • the needs of researchers and intersections with existing/emerging research data management services and resources;
  • synergies with the three researcher-facing digital research infrastructure (DRI) pillars (data management, research software, and advanced research computing);
  • intersections between national and international actors and jurisdictions; and
  • “rules of engagement” for platforms/services/resources to participate in a NDSF.


Results of discussions will inform the evolution of the NDSF and build on previous NDSF Summit outputs, as well as the collective activities of the Canadian research data management community.
