Research Data Services at UK: Grant Requirements
Resources and information to help you get started with data management, data preservation, and data sharing
Funding agencies increasingly require the inclusion of a data management plan with grant proposals. Requirements can vary by funding agency and even by announcement within a particular agency. It's important to look at the requirements for your particular announcement when developing your data management plan.
All investigator-initiated NIH applications with direct costs greater than $500,000 in any single year will be expected to address data sharing in their application. More information can be found on the NIH Grants Compliance & Oversight webpage.
