Data management plan

The Data Management Plan or Data Management Plan (DMP) is a methodological document that describes the life cycle of the data collected, generated and processed during a research project, a doctoral thesis, etc. 

More and more funding entities like theH2020and the State Plan require researchers to prepare a DMP.

It must contain information about:

  1. What data will be obtained to develop research.
  2. How they will be collected and processed.
  3. Which standards and what methodology will be followed?
  4. Who will be able to access the data.
  5. How they will be preserved when the search is complete.
 

     

    You have the free tool eiNa DMP (Research Data Management Plan) with templates adapted to the requirements of each funding body (H2020, ERC, State Plan) and the type of research you carry out (research project, doctoral thesis, etc.).
