OpenAIRE organises survey on the Horizon 2020 template for Data Management Plans

The OpenAIRE project is collecting feedback on the Horizon 2020 template for Data Management Plans (DMPs).

Since this is an open data pilot, it's your opportunity to respond and help shape future policy. Your feedback on the Commission's approach to DMPs and the FAIR DMP template in particular. You can give specific feedback to help OpenAIRE understand what works well and what doesn't so recommendations can be put back to the European Commission.

OpenAIRE will publish a summary of the responses to the survey and recommendations on the project website. The survey results will also be used as an input to the FAIR data expert group, which will contribute to an evaluation of the Horizon 2020 DMP template and suggest future revisions.

OpenAIRE likes to hear from:

- researchers, principal investigators, project coordinators and others who have written Horizon 2020 DMPs, as well as from
- research support staff who provide expertise and practical support to DMP writers.

The survey will close on June 21, 2017.

You can also check out the OpenAIRE webinars on Open Access to publications on May 29, 2017, on Open Research Data on May 30, 2017, and on the extension of the FP7 Post-Grant Open Access Pilot on June 1, 2017.
