CANARIE – Research Software Program Webinars 2019

October 7, 2019 at 1:00 PM

Building on previous CANARIE Research Software funding calls, this Call focuses on research platform sharing across multiple academic research teams, projects, and disciplines. Under this competitive call, up to $3.6M in funding will be contributed to Canadian research teams to modify and maintain an existing software platform in order to meet the needs of at least five new research teams. A platform, known internationally as a science gateway, is a software package that supports a large portion of what researchers need to do in their workflow.

The purpose of the call is to:

  • Allow researchers to adapt and reuse existing software to meet their research needs;
  • Reduce software development duplication by promoting the sharing of platforms and reducing new development; and
  • Extend platform lifetimes and support a larger base of researchers by providing a maintenance funding mechanism.
