Data Management Plan

Data Management Plan. CA will join the Open Research Data Pilot in Horizon 2020 and will work with its Data Management Plan (DMP) according the mentioned guidelines and standards. The DMP will be written by the project coordinator, IRTA, which will act as a Data Manager, and will describe the data management life cycle for the data to be collected, processed and/or generated by CA, including information on: the handling of research data during and after the end of the project, what data will be collected, processed and/or generated, which methodology and standards will be applied, whether data will be shared/made open access, and how data will be curated and preserved. The first version of CA’s DMP will be submitted in the 6th month as a project deliverable (D6.2) and will contain at least the following sections: (i) Data summary. The DMP will ensure CA data to be FAIR: Findable, including provisions for metadata, Accessible, Interoperable and Re-usable; (ii) Allocation of resources. Will reveal the expenses associated to data FAIR and the way that they will be covered; (iii) Data security. In terms of specific provisions for data security: data recovery, secure storage and transfer of sensitive data; (iv) Ethical aspects. That can have an impact on data sharing. The DMP will be updated over the course of the project whenever significant changes arise, such as: new data, changes in consortium policies (e.g. new innovation potential), changes in consortium composition and external factors (e.g. new consortium members joining). The DMP will be updated as a minimum in time with the periodic evaluation of the project.

Compilation of EIP-Agri practice abstracts developed No1

"Compilation of EIP-Agri practice abstracts developed until month 18. The resulting innovative knowledge and easy accessible end-user material from this project should feed into the EIP-AGRI website for broad dissemination. The end-user material to be produced contains a substantial number of summaries for practitioners in the EIP common format (""practice abstracts""), including the characteristics of the project (e.g. contact details of partners, etc). A full package of practice abstracts is needed for the project, containing all the outcomes/recommendations which are ready for practice. A ""practice abstract"" is a short summary of max 1500 characters (word count – no spaces) which describes a main information/recommendation/practice that can serve the end-users in their daily practice. The guidance to be followed for these practice abstracts and some explanatory text is available on the EIP-AGRI web site ( A target number of 35 practice is foreseen "
