Developing a Data Management Plan: New Expectations for Funding Workshop

Researchers often gather data as part of research projects and granting councils ask that data be deposited appropriately. Canada’s federal research granting agencies have started a consultation Toward a Policy Framework for Advancing Digital Scholarship in Canada which includes language about changing policies to promote “excellence in data management practices”. Researchers therefore need to consider data management when planning research projects and grant proposals. This workshop will introduce researchers to the resources on campus to help you develop a research data management plan and discuss some best practices. All researchers and other staff or colleagues involved with team or partnership applications are encouraged to attend this workshop.
