Last year in April 2011, the Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) set out its research data management expectations for institutions in receipt of EPSRC grant funding, which included the development of an institutional ‘Roadmap’.

Today, on 7 June 2012, the University of Bath has announced the publication of its Roadmap, which you can now view and download (PDF).

About the Roadmap

Ben Ryan, Senior Evaluation Manager, EPSRC, congratulated Bath on the document, and described it as “an excellent example of an appropriate response”.

He stated that the Roadmap “fully meets our needs for assurance that the University is taking our policy framework on research data seriously”. 

He also particularly welcomed the Glossary & Definitions section and suggested that “the definitions adopted could serve as a model for others to refer to.”
