Human Dimensions Open Data Challenge

SSHRC has partnered with Compute Canada, Ontario Centres of Excellence and ThinkData Works to launch the first “Human Dimensions Open Data Challenge.” Organized as part of SSHRC’s Imagining Canada’s Future initiative, this challenge seeks to address the following question:

What data, technology or process initiatives will mitigate or address critical business, policy, and social challenges in Canada’s natural resources and energy sectors through 2035?

Through this challenge, researchers in social sciences and humanities will lead multidisciplinary teams to respond to this question, and to find solutions to the related Future Challenge Area that focuses on energy and natural resources. The teams will address one or more of the following themes under this challenge area:

  • Community engagement
  • Human resources—skills, competencies and mobility gaps
  • Sustainability

The Human Dimensions Open Data Challenge is now closed for entries. Please visit the Compute Canada website for more information on the finalists, to be announced in mid-July.
