Canarie

Twelve provincial and territorial network partners, together with CANARIE, collectively form Canada’s National Research and Education Network (NREN). Canadians at universities, colleges, research institutes, hospitals, and government laboratories rely on this ultra high-speed network to collaborate in data-intensive, cutting-edge research and innovation within Canada and with colleagues in over 100 countries.
 
Beyond the network, CANARIE funds and promotes reusable research software tools to accelerate scientific discovery.  CANARIE also supports Research Data Canada as it leads national research data management initiatives, and through the Canadian Access Federation, provides identity management services that enable secure, ubiquitous connectivity and content access to the academic community. To boost commercialization in Canada’s technology sector, CANARIE offers cloud resources to startups through its DAIR service, and links a powerful community of public and private sector partners in the Centre of Excellence in Next Generation Networks (CENGN). 
 
Established in 1993, CANARIE is a non-profit corporation, with the majority of its funding provided by the Government of Canada.

Ensemble, CANARIE et les douze réseaux provinciaux et territoriaux qui sont ses partenaires forment le Réseau national de recherche et d’éducation (RNRE) du Canada. Dans les universités, les collèges, les instituts de recherche, les hôpitaux et les laboratoires publics, des Canadiens comptent sur ce réseau ultrarapide pour participer à des projets de recherche et d’innovation à la fine pointe de la technologie qui usent massivement des données, avec leurs collègues, au Canada et dans une centaine d’autres nations.
 
Au-delà du réseau, CANARIE finance et promeut la création de logiciels scientifiques réutilisables qui accélèrent la découverte. L’organisme soutient aussi financièrement Données de recherche Canada dans ses efforts pour piloter les initiatives nationales en gestion des données scientifiques. D’autre part, par le truchement de la Fédération canadienne d’accès, il dispense des services de gestion des identités grâce auxquels le milieu universitaire bénéficie d’une connectivité sûre et universelle, doublée d’un accès aux contenus. Pour faciliter la commercialisation dans le secteur canadien de la technologie, CANARIE met des ressources en infonuagique à la disposition des jeunes entreprises inscrites à son service ATIR et rassemble un puissant conglomérat de partenaires des secteurs public et privé au Centre of Excellence in Next Generation Networks (CENGN). 
 
Fondé en 1993, CANARIE est une société sans but lucratif, principalement financée par le gouvernement du Canada.

Center for Geospatial Analytics, NCSU

We are an interdisciplinary research and teaching center focused on data-driven spatial modeling and visualization for innovative solutions to pressing environmental and societal challenges. At the Center for Geospatial Analytics, everything is spatial and location matters in science, society, and decision-making processes.

As the technological and intellectual hub for the Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program in Geospatial Analytics, the Center’s cross-College collaborations and industry and community partnerships are advancing geospatial frontiers in:

Geothink

Launched in 2013, Geothink is an interdisciplinary research partnership exploring the impacts of increasing two-way exchanges of locational information between citizens and their city governments. Now in the fourth year of a five-year, $6.5 million partnership grant from the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada, Geothink involves 27 partners, 26 researchers, and over 100 students.

Our researchers gain on-the ground experience and insights from practitioners. This allows us to create high quality research that is targeted to have real impacts on city governance. Through cutting-edge investigations of the geospatial web, open data, crowdsourcing, and citizen science, the partnership has developed best practices, authored white papers, published academic journal articles, and created civic apps.

Réseau/Network Convergence

Le Réseau de convergence d’intelligence géospatiale pour l’innovation a pour mission de faciliter le regroupement de l’expertise issue des milieux universitaire, industriel et gouvernemental afin d’accroitre les activités de recherche et d’innovation dans le domaine géospatial et d’accélérer le transfert des résultats vers les utilisateurs.

The Convergence Network of geospatial intelligence for innovation mission is to facilitate the collaboration and the partnership among academia, industry and government sectors in order to stimulate research and innovation activities in geospatial and to accelerate the knowledge transfer to potential users.

Taylor & Francis

Taylor & Francis partners with world-class authors, from leading scientists and researchers, to scholars and professionals operating at the top of their fields. Together, we publish in all areas of the Humanities, Social Sciences, Behavioural Sciences, Science, Technology and Medicine sectors.

University of Saskatchewan

The Social Sciences Research Laboratories, or SSRL, provides access to specialized research infrastructure (computers, equipment and software) and research space (specific and multi-purpose). Additionally, the SSRL provides access to research supports in the form of specialists with backgrounds and training in specific social science research methods (quantitative and survey research; qualitative research; experimental research; GIS and cartography; social network analysis).

The SSRL currently consists of eight research laboratories:

Community-Based Observation Laboratory

Experimental Decision Laboratory

EEG Hyperscanning Laboratory

Qualitative Research Laboratory

Spatial Analysis For Innovation in Health Research Laboratory

Survey and Group Analysis Laboratory

Social Network Laboratory

Video Therapy Analysis Laboratory
