Reconnect Canada 2018

Join the CASRAI community in Canada as we work together to make research management information more efficient and effective throughout an ever changing research management lifecycle.


The CASRAI Reconnect Canada 2018 event is a nationally-focused, annual opportunity for those from research-performing institutions to come together with research-funders, research data management consortiums, solution providers, publishers and others in the Canadian research enterprise. Attendees effectively engage in various issues related to making research information more efficient and effective throughout an ever-changing research management lifecycle. It is also an excellent opportunity for networking, learning and sharing best practices across the post-secondary education sector.

Building on the success of the last year’s event in Montreal 2017, this year, conference attendees can look forward to updates from research funders, progress reports on CASRAI initiatives, and various workshops and roundtables.
