Can you explain what the problem is?

From 1 January 2006 all applicants submitting funding proposals to MRC must include a statement explaining their strategy for data preservation and sharing. 

Applicants must include this information within their Case for Support under a separate section entitled 'Data sharing and preservation strategy'. See the MRC Policy on Data Sharing and Preservation and the Applicants Handbook for more information.

In addition, it is noted that any potential problems in archiving the data that are anticipated or arise during the research project should be discussed with MRC as soon as possible, and data should be deposited in a standard that will enable them to be used by a third party, including the provision of adequate documentation.
