New AHRC Data Management Plan template

The Arts and Humanities Research Council is making some significant changes to its research data policy implementation. From Monday 29th March 2018, it is removing its requirement for a Technical Plan and as such disbanding its Technical College. In its place will be a requirement to submit a Data Management Plan. This will be mandatory for all Research Grants, Follow on Funding and Leadership Fellows proposals.

There will be a period of crossover between Technical Plans and Data Management Plans when both plans are in the system. Any proposals that are being considered for submission should start using the Data Management Plan. As such, the DCC has added the new template to its DMPonline tool. Now, when you select the AHRC as your funder, two template options appear. We will retire the AHRC Technical Plan template when the new requirements are in force.
