Data management planning

Complete a University of Leeds DMP

The University of Leeds data management plan (DMP) will complement your funder plan. It ensures that local resources are in place or costed into your bid.

Always start your funder plan first. The University of Leeds DMP will be completed naturally during the DMP process.

Download the University of Leeds DMP template (PDF).

Send your completed plan to your faculty IT manager and the Research Data team.
