The University of Toronto Data Sciences Institute (DSI) fosters the success of interdisciplinary data sciences research and partnerships by facilitating access to infrastructure and research supports through several programs to be launched in Fall 2021/Spring 2022.
The Office of Data Science Engagement assists University of Toronto (U of T) researchers with external collaborations, contracts, commercialization and major grant opportunities through several activities:
The Internal Peer Review (IPR) program connects researchers across disciplines, providing grant review support with funding applications to DSI programming and external organizations.
The DSI provides researchers with access to highly skilled Software Developers to facilitate the development of application-level research software that is accessible, used across disciplines and supports reproducible processes and pipelines.
We advocate on behalf of the DSI community to facilitate applied research computing access to expand resources, including for sensitive data and to guide the DSI community on the computational infrastructure available to them and how to access it.
