Write your DMP (online training)

Data management planning is an essential part of your research.  To do this, you need a Data Management Plan (DMP). This is a living document that outlines all aspects of your research data, such as how you collect, structure, protect, store, document and share the data. In order to meet the requirements from Utrecht University and your funders demands, you can now take the self-paced online module "Write your DMP”. Through interactive content and exercises, this e-learning module gives you an essential understanding of data management planning.

In this course, you will learn how to write all sections of your DMP, including: 

  • Collecting your data 
  • Structuring your data and using sustainable data formats 
  • Legal issues and data security 
  • Storing your data safely 
  • Documenting your data with documentation and metadata 
  • Sharing your data with others 
  • Licensing your data 
  • Preserving your data and making them FAIR


The module is self-paced, and will take on average 1,5 hours to complete.
