The DORA Movement in Canada: Working Together to Advance Assessment of Research Excellence

The DORA movement is evolving in Canada. 44 Canadian organizations have signed, including postsecondary institutions, research institutes, and all major funders. What does this mean for researchers across disciplines and career stages, for funders, for the public, for research administrators?

This half-day interactive session is designed to raise awareness of what DORA is and what it means for assessing research excellence, provide updates on the implementation of DORA into organizational and funding practices in Canada, and enable opportunities for discussion and idea generation among all participants.
