Research projects often generates valuable data such as measurements, computer code and illustrations. By structuring and storing the data appropiately future access and reuse is assured.
Data management is the process of curating information generated during a research project and includes proper documentation, processing, storage and archiving. Research funders often require that a data management plan is included in the project application.
