Creating a Data Management Plan

Research funders are increasingly requiring evidence of adequate and appropriate provisions for data management and curation in new grant applications. This workshop will introduce how to create a data management plan (DMP) to communicate a project’s approach to managing research data to the funder and collaborators. This is also beneficial for the project as it establishes the framework and resources to support researchers and the data, which translates to better time management and lower costs during project work.


At the end of the workshop participants will be able to:

  • Understand the wider research data management landscape
  • Appreciate funder DMP requirements
  • Define what to include in a DMP
  • Be able to develop a project-specific DMP
  • Know where to find research data management support


The workshop programme is as follows:

  • Introduction to the research data lifecycle
  • DMP structure outlined
  • Discussion of themes and headings
  • Other considerations
  • Support available


We have the following sessions arranged to be undertaken remotely through Zoom. Please book through the link so we can circulate the recording and slides after the event. All of the sessions cover the same core content so if your preferred date isn’t suitable it is still worth attending a different session.  

To support PGRs in the creation of DMPs I also run a session aimed at supervisors:
