    The Swiss National Science Foundation supports strongly the idea that research data should be shared as openly as possible. The SNSF requests therefore the submission of data management plans (DMP) as an integral part of the grant application from October 2017 on: researchers are asked to describe in the DMP what kind of data they will have, how it will be documented, accessible in a long term and which ethical and legal aspects exist regarding their data. Other funding programs, like the European Program Horizon 2020 require DMPs as well. In the Workshop we will address these requirements by international funders, good ways to write a DMP and in particular, using DMP as a helpful instrument beyond mere requirements.
