Data management and sharing

Update: 3 August 2010

Our position on data management and sharing was originally published in January 2007. It was revised in August 2010 following an internal review.

It states our expectation that all our funded researchers should maximise access to their research data with as few restrictions as possible. It requires applicants whose proposed research will generate data that hold significant value as a resource for the wider research community to submit a data management and sharing plan as part of the application process.

Our policy aligns with those of other organisations - such as the MRC, BBSRC, the US National Institutes of Health and the NCRI Cancer Informatics initiative.

All applicants for funding should refer to the Trust's guidance on developing a data management and sharing plan.
