Data Management Plan (DMP)

A report describing the data management life cycle for all data sets that will be collected, processed or generated by the research project. It is a document outlining how research data will be handled during a research project, and even after the project is completed, describing what data will be collected, processed or generated and following what methodology and standards, whether and how this data will be shared and/or made open, and how it will be curated and preserved. The first version of the DMP is delivered at M6 in compliance with the template provided by the Commission. The DMP will be updated at least by the mid-term and final review to fine-tune it to the data generated and the uses identified by the consortium
