Managing research data

Academy of Finland, Tekes and Horizon 2020

OpenAire: Open Research Data Pilot  The Open Research Data Pilot aims to make the research data generated by selected Horizon 2020 projects accessible with as few restrictions as possible, while at the same time protecting sensitive data from inappropriate access. Projects participating in the Horizon 2020 Open Research Data Pilot will be required to develop several versions of a Data Management Plan (DMP), in which they will specify what data will be kept for the longer term. Other projects are invited to submit a Data Management Plan if it is relevant for their planned research. DMPTuuli offers DMP template that match the demands and suggestions of the Guidelines on Data Management in Horizon 2020.
