UM Dataverse Repository receives funding for CoreTrustSeal Certification
Funding supports Canadian repositories in achieving the requirements for CoreTrustSeal certification.
The University of Manitoba Dataverse Research Data Repository has been selected for the NDRIO-Portage CoreTrustSeal Certification Support Cohort & Funding.
Launched in February 2021, the CoreTrustSeal Certification Support Cohort and Funding aims to support a group of Canadian repositories in achieving the requirements for CoreTrustSeal certification.
This certification process will bolster the integrity and sustainability of the UM Dataverse repository through meeting specific organizational and technical requirements that ensure data deposited within our repository is secure, properly managed and reliably accessible. By becoming certified, we can demonstrate to both to UM researchers, as well as their funders, that an independent authority has evaluated the trustworthiness of our Dataverse repository.
As part of the cohort, the University of Manitoba will receive training and engage with peers through facilitated workshops, including peer and expert review of repository self-assessments.
Each participating repository will receive funding to assist with the work necessary to achieve CoreTrustSeal requirements, prepare the required self-assessments, and cover the CoreTrustSeal application fee.
