* Workshop: Get your hands dirty with Data Management Plans (DMPs)
* Speaker: Eugene Barskey
''Description:'' In this 3
hrs session, we will start with a general overview of data management plans (DMPs) and best practices for research data management. We will introduce DMP Builder – the collaborative Canadian national tool to create DMPs and integrate them into grant and ethics applications. After reviewing the DMP basics, our attendees will work in small groups on an assigned research data scenario (example - http://goo.gl/Vut6dE). The groups will be creating a real data management plan and using online DMP Builder software to prepare the case for funding submission. At the end of the session, we will reconvene to share experiences and learn from each other.
