The Foundation introduces requirements for data management plans for the granted projects in the 2021 application round and onwards.
If a project is approved, a data management plan is required for data generated in the research that the Foundation has undertaken to fund. This plan must describe how data collected and/or created will be managed in the course of the research, and how the data will be dealt with subsequently. The plan need not be submitted to the Foundation, but the signing of the form by the project manager and head of department mean that the grant administrator also certifies that a data management plan will exist by the time the project commences and, moreover, will be maintained. See the Swedish Research Council’s information page about how to configure central parts of a data management plan.
If you have any questions about how to handle and store your research data, please contact your higher education institution.
