Data Management Plan (DMP)
All research projects at NTNU should develop a Data Management Plan describing how the research data will be managed.
NTNU Open Research Data
Research data at NTNU can be published and shared openly in our repository for research data, NTNU Open Research Data.
Search for data
Already existing data could be of use in your research project.
Here are some resources and databases where you can search for data:
Data Management Plan (DMP) and planning

- There are several different tools that can be useful when writing a DMP.

A "storage guide" providing an overview over the different solutions will be available by the end of May 2019.
