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 discuss requirements for data management in different funding opportunities, and considerations for data management at the start of the grants process. We will also look at the early stages of a research project process from the data management perspective, including formulating your research questions, thinking about your project team and responsibilities for managing data, and accessing relevant institutional support.
After this workshop, you will be able to:
- Identify data management requirements for some of the major grant funding agencies;
- Find appropriate tools to create a collaborative planning workspace for your research project and partners;
- Begin to create a data management plan for your research project using the online DMP Assistant;
- Learn about what you have access to as faculty, and who to contact for the different data management supports at SFU.
