DevPro training - Establish a Data Management Plan

# DevPro training on Thursday, March 23 2023

The OLOS Association’s team is pleased to announce a new DevPro Research Data Management training, dedicated to DMP creation.


Description :

The morning part will start with an introduction to the definition of Data Management Plans (DMPs), as well as an update on the emergence of DMP requests when funding is sought for research in Switzerland. In this context, the SNSF Open Research Data policy will be presented.

In a second step, the different parts of the DMPs addressed to the SNSF will be discussed and exemplified:

  • Data collection and documentation.
  • Ethical, legal and security considerations.
  • Data storage and preservation.
  • Data sharing and reuse.

Finally, some tools to assist in the development of DMPs will be discussed.

The afternoon part will be practice-oriented. Participants will fill in their DMPs on the basis of their own research, or fictitious research that will be proposed. The results will be discussed together.


Objectives :

At the end of the course, participants will know:

  • what are the aims and issues of DMPs,
  • how to complete a DMP on their own,
  • the tools and documentation to help them complete a DMP.
