Cyberinfrastructure Initiative

We will support research data infrastructure projects that create tailored, shared and integrated data resources (e.g. databases and data repositories) capable of enabling leading-edge research on significant scientific, social and economic questions.

We are pleased to issue the draft Call for Proposals for the second competition of Challenge 1 of the Cyberinfrastructure Initiative. In this competition, we challenge institutions to propose projects that bring together a community of researchers from across the country who share similar challenges linked to the availability of research data. Projects should address existing or emerging challenges for a community of researchers through the development of new tools and applications or novel ways of organizing and using research data that would enhance the community’s capacity to conduct leading-edge research. The research data infrastructure initiative is about data-sharing and providing access to any researcher who can exploit and mine the resource to advance knowledge and promote innovation.

The consortia are also encouraged to embrace an “adopt, adapt and develop” approach as well as to link to Canadian and international initiatives whenever appropriate. This will promote efficiency, interoperability and rapid implementation. Projects that propose to expand existing Canadian data initiatives are also encouraged. We also expect institutions with significant computing and storage needs to continue consulting with Compute Canada to determine how the advanced national platform can accommodate their needs.

The CFI expects to fund between five and 10 proposals. As such, and given the substantial amount of work that goes into preparing and reviewing such proposals, institutions should be very selective about which Notices of Intent they participate in. Given the small number of awards anticipated, an institution cannot submit a proposal for a project funded in the first competition.

The CFI welcomes your comments on this draft Call for Proposals until March 20, 2017. Please send your comments and feedback to cyber [at] innovation.ca.
