Funding organisations often state additional requirements. The SNSF funding regulations2 (Art. 44) require that research data is made available to other researchers for secondary research and is integrated in recognised scientific data pools. Researchers who are applying for funding with the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) will be required to submit a data management plan (DMP) with their funding application as of October 2017. SNSF is currently working out DMP guidelines. Further information will be provided continuously from Spring 2017 onwards on the SNSF website (external link).

The Research Data Management and Digital Curation Office is offering guidance on how to develop data management plans in their trainings on research data management. It also provides a checklist with further information on what needs to be considered regarding data management.


Data management plans vary greatly depending on the research project or discipline. The The Research Data Management and Digital Curation Office can assist you in your work on a data management plan6.
