[Translate to English:] Post its saying Q and A

On 22 February 2021, the second part of the interactive workshop "Deep Dive into Data for Applicants" took place with the participation of the Center for Research Data Management at TU Wien. 

The workshop was organised by the Data Intelligence Offensive, opens an external URL in a new window (DIO) and aimed at consortia interested in submitting to the IKT der Zukunft call. The aim was to equip participants with know-how on data management for the submission.

DMP required for project submission

Applicants are required to submit a data management plan (DMP) as an annex to the project description. The FFG regards the DMP as a "living document" which must be updated with the submission of reports.

All researchers at TU Wien who need help writing a DMP, who are looking for a suitable template, or would like to have their DMP cross-checked can contact us at Instructions for DMP creation and further information can also be found on our DMP website.
