RDM policy

On 9th September 2014, NWO and SURF academy organized a national meeting on Research Data Management (RDM). NWO organized the meeting to get feedback on the RDM policy they're currently developing.

At the meeting all Dutch universities were represented by staff members from academic support bodies and libraries. Wageningen UR was represented by Wouter Gerritsma and Jacquelijn Ringersma. They presented the Wageningen UR policy on RDM.

RDM pilot

At the meeting NWO announced the start of an RDM pilot in the 2015 Vici round. In this pilot Vici applicants will be invited to include a Research Data Management Paragraph (RDMP). The paragraph will explain how data will be collected during the research and how the data will be published after the research. The RDMP will not be compulsory. But, NWO announced that proposals with an RDMP stand a better chance of approval. After approval the researcher will have to write a complete Research Data Management Plan.

RDMP format

The NWO format for the RDMP does not significantly differ from the EU H2020 and the ZonMw format for RDMPs or from the format advised by the Wageningen Graduate Schools.

Results and presentations

The meeting's presentations can be found at the Research Data Wiki (in Dutch).
