Objective of the session:

In the context of scientific research, Data Management Plans (DMP) are increasingly requested by project funders to describe the data lifecycle of projects from the craddle to the grave. The main difficulty is to fully understand what is exactly required to build such a document. The aim of this training is to assist researchers in putting together their own DMP, first by describing the important concepts to know before starting to draft one, then by having practical work sessions during which their own plan will be drafted with the support of experts.

  • Day 1 : afternoon : presentation CINES, DMP + FAIR in theory, tools ;
  • Day 2 : morning : Long term preservation (metadata, formats, principles),  DMP hands on ; afternoon : DMP hands on ;
  • Day 3 : morning : EOSC-hub services, CINES visit.


This training is intended for researchers who have a DMP to build as part of their research project. At the registration, participants will be asked to provide a simple description of the case for which they need to complete this document.
