DCC workshop: Introduction to Data Management Planning and DMPonline – 29 January 2015, Central London

Funding bodies increasingly require evidence of appropriate provisions for data management and curation in new grant funding applications. The Digital Curation Centre (DCC) is delighted to announce we will host a half-day workshop to provide an introduction to data management planning and DMPonline, the DCC’s web-based tool to help researchers write DMPs. We’ve recently released a new version of DMPonline which offers a lot of flexibility in terms of how institutions can customise it. You can create your own template(s), provide example/suggested answers and add tailored guidance to help researchers respond to requirements. We will demonstrate DMPonline, profile the options available for customising the tool and undertake a practical exercise on data management planning.

By the end of this workshop participants will:

  • understand funders’ requirements for data management and sharing
  • understand what a data management plan is and how to go about completing one
  • be aware of DMPonline and how the tool can be customised by institutions

This is a half-day workshop running from 1pm – 4pm.

Cost: £65, including lunch

Location: The Wesley, 81-103 Euston Street, London, NW1 2EZ
