How to write a Data Management Plan

The next Research Data Management webinar from OpenAIRE and EUDAT “How to write a Data Management Plan” will be held  on Thursday, 7 July 2016 at 11.00 CEST.

As several research funders are carrying out (Open) Data Pilots, projects and researchers are increasingly required to deliver a Data Management Plan or DMP. The DMP is a useful instrument for researchers to reflect on and communicate about the way they will deal with their data. It prompts them to think about how they will generate, analyse and share data during their research project and afterwards.

In this webinar Sarah Jones (DCC) and Marjan Grootveld (DANS) will talk you through the aspects that Horizon 2020 requires from a DMP. We’ll discuss examples from real DMPs and also touch upon the Software Management Plan, which for some projects can be a sensible addition. Target audience is Researchers, data librarians, project coordinators and research officers.
