Win research funding with a good Data Management Plan - for Chemistry PDRAs

Wed 11 Apr 2018


Are you a post-doc (or a PI) at Chemistry applying for grants? Do you need to write a Data Management Plan (DMP) as part of your grant application but don't know how? Are you a post-doc (or PI) who is just interested in learning about writing data management plans? If so, this session is for you.

You will increasingly be required to write a DMP as part of your grant applications, but it is also useful to write one whenever you begin a research project, to help you plan how to manage your data effectively from the start.

During this session you will learn everything you need to know about data management plans:

  • What they are
  • Why they are increasingly required as part of grant applications
  • What to include in data management plans
  • Tools to help writing data management plans
  • See example data management plans

Refreshments will be provided (tea, coffee, and biscuits).

Target audience
  • PDRAs in the Department of Chemistry.
  • PIs or other staff in the Department of Chemistry involved in research grant / fellowship applications.

  • Why?
  • What?
  • How?

Part 2: Introduction to DMPonline

  • Create a data management plan using an online tool.
  • Peer review your colleague’s data management plan.

At the end of the session you will understand:
