To support researchers to produce an effective data management plan (DMP), we have launched the web-based tool DMPMaastricht, based on the DMPonline tool. DMPMaastricht is hosted by DataHub and provided in close collaboration with MEMIC Maastricht, the Clinical Trial Center Maastricht (CTCM) and the Grants Office. We ease the burden on the researcher by providing institutional guidance and example answers.
Funding agencies are more and more expecting you to integrate data management in your research proposal. A DMP helps you to manage data, meet funder requirements and help others use your research data if shared. Some funders mandate the use of DMPMaastricht, while others point to it as a useful option.
You can download funder templates without logging in, however, DMPMaastricht provides tailored guidance and example answers from funders and your organisation, provided by DataHub, MEMIC, CTCM and the Grants Office. By using DMPMaastricht it is easy to collaborate with internal and external experts on your data management plan.
DMPMaastricht offers templates of several funding agencies, currently ZonMw, NWO and the European Commission (Horizon2020).
