Survey on users’ experience with EC DMP template: extended deadline

The deadline for completing the OpenAIRE survey on the Horizon 2020 template for Data Management Plans has been extended to Friday 21st of July. You can complete the survey at:

Why should I complete the survey?

OpenAIRE is committed to help researchers fulfil the ECs open data requirements, to improve our services we set out to gather as much information as possible about the current experiences with writing DMP's for Horizon 2020 projects. We’re really keen to hear your feedback on the Commission’s approach to DMPs and the FAIR DMP template in particular. Your feedback will provide us with valuable information to provide recommendations to the EC.

Please take the time to complete the survey as the information you give us will be valuable and help us make improvements.

How was your experience with writing or reviewing H2020 DMP’s?

Since its launch in 2013 the Open Research Data Pilot has been extended to cover all Horizon 2020 projects. Not only are the requirements often a new challenge for participants, the EC too adjusted and refined its guidelines. To evaluate the current guidelines for writing a DMP, OpenAIRE is looking for your experience in writing or reviewing DMP’s of Horizon 2020 projects.

What was your experience using the H2020 template? What improvements could be made to the H2020 template? Was anything in the guidelines unknown, unclear or confusing? And in an ideal world, what would you like a DMP template or associated tool to do for you?

Your answers will help expose ambiguities, evaluate the current guidelines and contribute to future revisions.

Complete the survey?

If you are a researcher, principal investigator, project coordinator or part of research support staff and have experience with writing Horizon 2020 DMPs, we would love to hear from you:

Feel free to circulate the survey to any lists or contacts that might be able to contribute.
The more voices we hear the better we can evaluate current shortcomings and the better our feedback to the EC will be for future revisions.
