Researchers who apply for a grant from ZonMw and/or perform a research project can find here the grant conditions and procedures they need to follow, and information about templates for planning their research data management and stewardship (RDM).
The section Background information provides guidances to support RDM, and in the section Innovation one can find new concepts and best practices to apply in RDM.

5 steps for RDM: from grant proposal to the end of a project
Researchers need to take the following steps into account to plan RDM during their research: from its design phase during the grant proposal, to the end of the project, and afterwards when preserving and sharing the data.
Making a data management plan
Making a data management plan (DMP) is obligatory in (most) of ZonMw’s research programmes.
Note that ZonMw will NOT review DMPs anymore (unless it is indicated otherwise in the call for proposals). Researchers are responsible for the quality of their DMP, together with their data steward
According to ZonMw’s policy and requirements for RDM, researchers may choose a DMP template, the template of ZonMw, or the DMP template that is provided by the research institution. In the latter case, the institutional DMP template has to be acknowledged by ZonMw. Click here for a list of acknowledged templates.
ZonMw’s policy and requirements for RDM
ZonMw’s approach for RDM is implemented in its policy, requirements and procedures.
RDM is an important activity in all stages of a research project: from its design phase during the grant proposal, to the end of the project, and afterwards when preserving and sharing the data.
