By 2019, all who receive grants from us must have a data management plan

As from spring 2019, if you are awarded a grant from the Swedish Research Council you must have a plan for how the research data generated within your project shall be managed.

You must not send in your data management plan to us when you apply for a grant, but your administrating organisation will be responsible for ensuring that a data management plan is in place when you start your project or corresponding, and that the plan is maintained.

More information on our work with open access to research data and data management plans will be available on shortly.
