Funded Research Software Platforms

Since 2007, we’ve supported Canadian research teams by funding the development of software critical to their work. These sophisticated software tools, known as research platforms, typically support end-to-end research workflow within a specific domain – essentially a one-stop shop for research projects. New platforms re-used software components previously developed through CANARIE funding, and contributed additional components back to the research community, creating a powerful cycle of software development and reuse. All funded platforms are available on the Canadian Research Software Registry and can be used for research purposes at no cost.

Learn more about a selection of these platforms and the transformative research projects they helped accelerate.
