Memo from UBC Psychiatry IT: NDRIO Virtual Town Halls May 2021


The New Digital Research Infrastructure Organization (NDRIO) is hosting a series of eight Virtual Town Halls between May 4 and May 7 to share and validate key findings from the Canadian Digital Research Infrastructure Needs Assessment process.

The Virtual Town Halls will be of great interest to researchers and other stakeholders of the Canadian DRI landscape, regardless of discipline, level of engagement with DRI tools or research experience. We encourage the attendance of the broader research community, including:

  • Researchers
  • Senior Administration of academic and research institutions (e.g., Vice-Presidents Research, Chief Information Officers, Chief Librarians, etc. )
  • Research Support Staff
  • Research Administration Staff
  • Librarians
  • Infrastructure providers
  • Service providers
  • Funders

Each session will be 60 minutes long and feature one of four themes: Awareness and Accessibility, Governance and Policy, Operations and Support, designed around the preliminary findings of the Needs Assessment consultations to date. The initial findings of each theme will be briefly presented followed by a moderated breakout session.
