Data Management Plan

Outline and implement a Data Management Plan (DMP) in order to optimise and maximise the accessibility and the impact of the XLS results. The Data Management Plan (DMP) will select appropriate repositories and an effective strategies to make the results of XLS accessible with as few restrictions as possible, adhering to the Open Research Data Pilot (https://www.openaire.eu/opendatapilot). The DMP will be regularly updated in accordance with the Guidelines on FAIR Data Management in Horizon 2020.
