We are happy to announce that DLN projects (including partner projects) now can apply for funding to support their data management work.
Deadline: 1. December 2020
Available funding: 40,000NOK
Application: Use the application form found here
DLN supports data management according to the FAIR principles. This includes secure management of sensitive data. We have strengthened our work and support on data management, and hope the DLN projects will use this opportunity for support and advice on how to improve their data management. To make this easier, we strongly advice project leaders to appoint a responsible person for data management in the research project. Several projects have done this already. These persons will be our major contact points towards the project on data management and they will be followed up more extensively.
We have now set aside funding to support projects on data management and welcome requests from the research projects (including partner projects). The limit for applied support is set to 40,000NOK per application. However, this number will depend on the total amounts of applications or if several projects apply together. We do welcome applications from single projects, but will have to prioritize collaborative efforts between projects, if needed. Applications will be ranked by general profit for the research community.
Examples of what we can support:
Applications should be short and to the point, answer the requirements below and in the application form, including a tentative budget showing how the resources applied for will be used together with own contributions from the project(s).
The following requirements must be fulfilled and included to receive funding:
