This workshop is Part 1 of the three-session series RDM@SFU -- a Research Data Management roadmap for researchers. 


 About the workshop

A successful research project needs planning and often includes looking for grant funding. Many grants now require data management planning documentation and commitments on data storage and retention to be included in the application stage. In this session we look at the early stages of a research project process from the data management perspective, including responsibilities for managing data and accessing relevant institutional support. We discuss requirements for data management in different funding opportunities, and considerations for data management at the start of the grants process. In some cases it may be necessary for you to have data transfer or access agreements; for example, with secondary data provided under specific terms. SFU supports for different types of research contracts will also be discussed. 

After this workshop, you will have greater awareness of:

  • Some tools to create a collaborative planning workspace for your research project and partners; 
  • Creating a data management plan for your research project using the online DMP Assistant
  • Data management requirements for some of the major grant funding agencies; 
  • Grant- or contract-specific compliance for data management; 
  • Different types of research data contracts that might be needed for your project, and how to request them; 
  • Scenarios or instances where Research Services will need to be involved.    

This workshop will be presented by Institutional Strategic Awards, Research Computing, Research Services and SFU Library
