Funders increasingly require their grant-holders to produce a Data Management Plan (DMP), both during the bid-preparation stage and after funding has been secured. A Data Management Plan helps you to manage data, meet funder requirements and help others use your research data if shared.
To support researchers to produce an effective Data Management Plan, we provide the web-based tool DMPMaastricht, based on the DMPonline tool. DMPMaastricht is hosted by DataHub Maastricht and provided in collaboration with MEMIC Maastricht, the Clinical Trial Center Maastricht (CTCM) and the Grants Office. You can create plans with DMPMaastricht to meet funder requirements at the grant application stage, or to support data management throughout your research project. Some funders mandate the use of DMPMaastricht, while others point to it as a useful option.
You can download funder templates without logging in, but DMPMaastricht provides tailored guidance and example answers from funders and your organisation, provided by DataHub, MEMIC and CTCM.
