Action Theme 2 will help to promote active and effective data management and stewardship in all Belmont Forum funded research, and enable harmonization of e-¬infrastructure through enhanced project data planning, monitoring, review and sharing.
The primary goal for this Action Theme is to generate an Enhanced Data Plan (EDP) template for use in Belmont Forum funded research. The EDP should cover the management of data, connection of the data to associated context, facilitating the discoverability of the data, and ensuring that the data is capable of reuse/exploitation.
All actions within this theme would be supported by a Data Information Officer (DIO). Priorities include adoption and evolution of an Enhanced Data Plan (EDP) template (with corresponding budget allocations), identification of key repositories, and the establishment of metrics and review mechanisms. In addition, the DIO will work with the Coordination Office to identify and liaise with existing working groups that consider data policy and security issues and integrate relevant information into the basis for the EDP.
