What prevents a project to provide a DMP and not strictly follow with it until the end?
Please see Guidelines on FAIR Data Management in Horizon 2020 (http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/data/ref/h2020/grants_manual/h...), section 4. ‘Research Data Management plans during the project life cycle’:
A funded project must submit a first version of its DMP (as a deliverable) within the first 6 months of the project. The DMP needs to be updated over the course of the project whenever significant changes arise, such as (but not limited to):
- new data
- changes in consortium policies (e.g. new innovation potential, decisions to file for a patent)
- changes in consortium composition and external factors (e.g. new consortium members joining or old members leaving)
As a minimum the DMP should be updated and detailed with each periodic report. Furthermore, the consortium can define a timetable for review in the DMP itself.
The DMP is intended to be a living document in which information can be made available in more detail through updates as the implementation of the project progresses and when significant changes occur.
