Planning for research data management

The sixth meeting of the Research Data Management Forum (RDMF6), sponsored by the Digital Curation Centre (DCC) in association with Research Information Network, will be hosted by the University of Leicester on 5-6 May 2011.

The theme for the meeting, Planning for research data management – meeting funder imperatives, will provide an opportunity to explore the principles for planning set by the major funders, what these mean in practice for researchers and institutions, as well as how plans are assessed, monitored and their agreed outputs measured.

The Keynote will be made by Juan Bicarregui (Science and Technology Facilities Council and RIN Research Communications Group) on research funder requirements for data management planning.

Presentations and discussions currently planned will cover a range of topical issues, including practical guidance and training for effective data management planning, how to win the grant and deliver the plan, and the impact on resourcing support for the plan.

The registration form and details on the full programme are now available from the Digital Curation Centre.
