Data Management Plan
Resilience Management & Governance
“The purpose of the Data Management Plan (DMP) is to provide an analysis of the main elements of the data management policy that will be used by the NextGen project with regards to all the datasets that will be generated by the project.
The DMP should address the points presented in this document on a dataset by dataset basis and should reflect the current status of reflection within the consortium about the data that will be generated, collected, stored and processed. Furthermore, a planning in data treatment
is important for addressing timely security, privacy and ethical aspects, a process increasingly
important in a multi-partner research.
In general terms, the research data should be ‘FAIR’ that is findable, openly accessible, interoperable and re-usable through clarifying licenses. The allocation of resources for the data collection and management is explicitly described in chapter 3 of this document. With regard to the data security, developing and establishing a backup and recovery plan for all NextGen data is a crucial part of data security. With regards to the ethical aspects, a number of ethical issues have been identified for the execution of NextGen, specifically humans, non- EU countries, data protection and compliance with the GDPR and others.
The benefits of a well-designed DMP not only concern the way data are treated but also the successful outcome of the project itself.”
