The Cyberinfrastructure Initiative (CYB) stream coordinates with the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI)’s Cyberinfrastructure Initiative to enhance the capacity of Canadian institutions and researchers to conduct leading-edge research in areas of demonstrated strength by supporting the infrastructure needs of computationally- and data-intensive research.
The Research Capacity Program (RCP) will support the infrastructure needs of computationally and data-intensive research in alignment with institutional priorities and the government priorities, such as the ARIF, by investing in a limited number of research data infrastructure projects in collaboration with Compute Canada. Funded research initiatives will enable communities of researchers, along with data scientists, data analysts, software developers, and other experts to devise optimal ways of organizing and using research data resources.
The RCP uses a cost-shared funding approach to provide up to 40% of the total eligible project costs for successful applications, enabling projects to leverage support from the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) and other sources.
