Since 1 January 2017, similar requirements for data management plans apply to Horizon 2020 projects as for SNSF!
Regarding the digital research data generated in the action (‘data’), the beneficiaries must:
- deposit in a research data repository and take measures to make it possible for third parties to access, mine, exploit, reproduce and disseminate — free of charge for any user — the following:
- the data, including associated metadata, needed to validate the results presented in scientific publications as soon as possible;
- other data, including associated metadata, as specified and within the deadlines laid down in the 'data management plan' (see Annex 1);
- provide information — via the repository — about tools and instruments at the disposal of the beneficiaries and necessary for validating the results (and — where possible — provide the tools and instruments themselves).
