FYI  see call for feedback forwarded from CODATA for OpenAIRE on horizon 2020 template for Data Management Plans

The message below is sent on behalf of colleagues from Open Aire and may be of interest to members of the CODATA International community in Europe and beyond:

Dear colleagues,

The OpenAIRE project is collecting feedback on the Horizon 2020 template for Data Management Plans. Please complete the survey at:  

Since this is an open data pilot, it’s your opportunity to respond and help shape future policy. We’re really keen to hear your feedback on the Commission’s approach to DMPs and the FAIR DMP template in particular. Please give us specific feedback to help us 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.

We'd like 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.

Many thanks for your participation. Thanks also to the Dutch National Coordination Point RDM for the questions we borrowed from their recent survey on DMP reviewing experiences.

Our survey will close on June 21st 2017. Please respond before then and help us by circulating it to relevant lists.

Kind regards,

Research Data Management team in OpenAIRE
