Welcome Message from Interim President & CEO,

I am honoured to have the opportunity to serve Compute Ontario (CO) and our constituents. Ontario’s digital research ecosystem is evolving rapidly, and researchers across all disciplines need access to the digital research infrastructure (DRI) required for leading-edge research. CO, our funder, the Ministry of Colleges and Universities (MCU) and our key partners such as our consortia, the Centre for Advanced Computing (CAC) at Queen’s University, HPC4Health, SciNet, and SHARCNET, are committed to building and delivering a robust digital research ecosystem. Digital research infrastructure in Canada is built on the pillars of research data management (RDM), research software (RS), and advanced research computing (ARC). The DRI ecosystem is run by teams of highly qualified personnel with the skills and expertise to manage and maintain the DRI system, assist researchers in using these tools, and train the next generation of researchers in the use of digital tools. A robust DRI ecosystem allows researchers to improve the lives of Canadians by enabling research and innovation. 

Compute Ontario’s role in the DRI ecosystem includes coordinating infrastructure funding and skills development initiatives, as well as the operation and delivery of digital research systems and services. 

If you have suggestions on how we can do this more effectively, I invite you to reach out (ea@computeontario.ca).

I look forward to the new discoveries and advancements that 2021 will bring, and the opportunity to share and discuss our vision of a cohesive digital ecosystem in Ontario.

Thanks and regards,

Ranil Sonnadara
