Article 29.3 of the H2020 provides that the projects participating in the pilot plan must develop a data management plan (DMP):
Deposit the research data (those required to validate the results presented in scientific publications) in a repository as soon as possible to enable third parties to access, mine, exploit, reproduce and disseminate (free of charge for any user) this research data.
Document the research data: provide information, via the repository, about the tools and instruments necessary for validating, interpreting and reproducing the research performed.
Exceptions: the open dissemination of the project's results can be excluded for security, privacy, personal data protection or commercial/industrial exploitation reasons.
Costs: The costs related to the data are considered eligible expenses in the project.
Areas included in the pilot:
Future and Emerging Technologies.
Research Infrastructures – part e-Infrastructures.
Leadership in Enabling and Industrial Technologies – Information and Communication Technologies.
Societal Challenge: Secure, Clean and Efficient Energy – part smart cities and communities.
Societal Challenge: Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials – with the exception of topics in the area of raw materials.
Societal Challenge: Europe in a changing world – inclusive, innovative and reflective Societies.
Science with and for Society.
Important: Even though a project does not form part of these areas, it is possible to request its inclusion in the pilot plan.
