Units 3 and 4 address numerous questions raised by researchers and professionals who are facing the challenge of completing a DMP.

After a short reminder on the general aspects of the research methodology and the qualitative and quantitative research data specificities, we will introduce the DMP within a national and international context.

The Data Management Plan consists of numerous fields that will be itemized and illustrated with examples. A hands on session will allow participants to work on issues related to their own DMP or more generally on their own specific questions. This workshop is intended to bring support to those who are applying at national funding agency such as the SNF or international funding entity for which the DMP is a requirement.

The workshop will be mostly interactive. It intends to bring practical answers to those relevant and recurrent questions on data such as ethics, QA/QC, intellectual property, storage options, long-term preservation solutions, and more…

These two units will alternate conceptual blocks and examples in the morning with hands-on session in the afternoon. Groups will be organised either around the participant research interests or around their own interest regarding use cases and specific issues on research data.


Participants with a research background are kindly requested to bring along their “Use Case”, describing briefly their research data (max. 1 page). This is not a requirement and participants are welcome without it. It is recommended to attend Unit 1 and 2 on “Research Methodology enabling Good Governance of Research Data Life Cycle Management”.
