Select a template

EasyDMP is a web form consisting of a series of questions grouped into a number of sections.  The questionnaire currently implements the EU Horizon 2020 recommendation with regard to data management. However, the service can support multiple form for the questionnaire (referred to as "template") and we are planning in the near future to support other recommendations schemes (ex.: institutional spesific recomendations).

The questionnaire is dynamic, meaning that the type and the amount of questions you will be presented at every stage depends on the answer you have given at the previous stage.  For example, the Horizont 2020 template consists of up to 70 questions split into six sections. So the maximum amount of questions is 70, but most likely you will have much less then that. Many of the questions are designed as simple “yes/no” questions and each response results in pre-written text that will appear in your plan.

Is it possible to integrate Institutions spesific recommendations or community spesific recomendations into template avilable in the easyDMP. If you want to know more about this take contact with us: sigma2@uninett.no.
