Producing a data management plan 

All who are awarded a grant from the Swedish Research Council must have a data management plan if the research generates research data. The plan shall describe how data collected and/or created will be managed during the course of the research, and how they will be dealt with afterwards.

The Swedish Research Council and the Association of Swedish Higher Education Institutions (SUHF) have developed a template with six central parts that a data management plan should cover. It is a partially reworked version of Science Europe’s template “Core Requirements for Data Management Plans”. Please feel free to use the template when you produce your data management plan.

Note: You must not send us any documentation – except if you have a project grant for digitisation and accessibility of cultural heritage collections. According to our general grant terms and conditions, your administrating organisation shall confirm that a data management plan will be in place when you start your project, and also that the plan will be maintained.
