Design your Data Management Plan for the SNSF


Various funding organizations demand the submission of a Data Management Plan (DMP) together with each research proposal. Since October 2017, the SNSF (Swiss National Science Foundation) also requires a DMP in which applicants must outline how data will be generated, collected, documented, shared and preserved in order to improve data reusability and reproducibility in scientific research projects.
In this workshop, participants will learn how to write their own DMP to accompany funding applications submitted to the SNSF. They become acquainted with the available infrastructures and services related to research data management at UZH and will find out how a DMP can turn from an alleged administrative burden into a valuable tool to improve their research.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops and draft DMPs for discussion (if available).
