Data Management Plan (DMP)

If you have obtained a Horizon Europe funding you have to write a Data Management Plan (DMP). A DMP describes the data management life cycle for the data to be collected, processed and/or generated by a Horizon 2020 project. As part of making research data findable, accessible, interoperable and re-usable (FAIR), a DMP should include information on:

- the handling of research data during and after the end of the project · what data will be collected, processed and/or generated;
- which methodology and standards will be applied;
- whether data will be shared/made open access and;
- how data will be curated and preserved (including after the end of the project).
