Research Funders and Data Management Requirements

An increasing number of funders require researchers to create a data management plan and apply the FAIR principles to their data.

You can use DMPonline to access funder templates for Data Management Plans (DMP).
Find links below to information about research funder RDM requirements*

*Applicable to projects that are currently being submitted.


Note: NWO requires that DMPs are first checked by a data steward or data management support at the home organization prior to submission. Please submit your DMP (via DMPonline) to the Data Desk for review.


Horizon 2020 (European Commission)

All H2020 grantees take part in an Open Research Data Pilot, though it is possible to opt out at any stage.
