Data Management Plan

Data Management Plan. It will be issued in M4, M12, M24 and M30. There are different activities and deliverables in the Project that will make available open research data files, specially: - Publications in conferentces and peer reviewed journals - Datasets resulting from some of the activties devoted to simulation and tests. These datasets have not been appointed as independent deliverables in the deliverables lists. They will be the open part of larger deliveries that will not be fully public.
