The NIH requires Data Sharing Plans for all grants seeking “$500k or more in direct costs in any one year,” or as required by the solicitation.
The data management plan is more than a component of your proposal; it is a blueprint for how you will actually manage the data during the course of your funded work. Therefore, creating an effective data management plan is an integral part of creating a winning proposal. It is very important that successful proposers develop a policy for access and sharing within the requirements specific to the Directorate, Office, Division, Program, or Institute.
During this insightful Webinar you will learn what counts as data, and understand the agencies’ expectations and requirements for the data management plan. Your expert presenter will cover how to think about managing your data before you begin your proposed research to insure usability, long-run preservation and access. You will get the guidelines on funding the plan and examine model data management plans and processes to create them. This is not hard but it is a requirement for a competitive proposal. 
Walk away with the ability to easily and efficiently address the data management or data sharing plan requirement for your proposal, to include:

  • Distinguish data types
  • Understand the five key components and requirements
  • Develop an access and sharing protocol
  • Create a plan with examples you can use

5 Key Take-Aways:

  • The types of data to be “managed,” including samples, physical collections, software, curriculum materials, and other materials produced in the course of the funded project.
  • The standards to be used for data and metadata format.
  • Creating a plan using online tools.
  • NIH’s expectations regarding the release of data that include sensitive or proprietary information.
  • Shaping your data management plan to meet the expectation of the reviewers.

 Who Should Attend:

  • Scientists, Principal Investigators and Senior Staff involved in the develop of proposals and in the management of grant funded projects.
