Funding agency requirements


Increasingly, funding agencies are requiring grant applicants to include a data management plan (DMP) with new grant applications. When applying for a grant, always check the funding agency website or the request for proposals (RFP) carefully to determine if a DMP is required and what information should be included.


Why do funding agencies require DMPs?

  • Increase transparency and reproducibility of research
  • Increased awareness that data is a valuable part of research that need to be shared and preserved
  • Want to fund projects with well defined research data management practices
