"Funding agencies such as the European Commission with the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation program now require, depending on specifics of the research project, the inclusion of a Data Management Plan (DMP) by which the management and safeguard of sensitive data (on humans notably) is ensured. This requirement not only concerns how the project is run, but also the submission of proposals.

As a result, the EPFL Presidency on January 26, 2015 has approved the creation of a service to support you in fulfilling this new requirement, which has become an important element in the planning, organisation, sharing and sustainability of your research data. Besides, a well-constructed DMP will enhance the visibility, reproducibility, and integrity of your research while helping you to save time in preserving your data for the long term.

EPFL’s DMP service is currently being set-up to guide and accompany you in this process, and will be operated in collaboration between the Research Office (ReO), the Library and Information Services (SISB) and the Vice-Presidency of Information Systems (VPSI). For more information, particularly if you are confronted with the issue as you are writing or submitting a proposal, please feel free to contact our colleagues at the following email address: datamanagementplan@epfl.ch"
