The deliverable 11.16, Data Management Plan 3, was submitted by NTNU in December 2020. Following, the executive summary of the deliverable:
‘This deliverable constitutes the third version of the Data Management Plan for the +CityxChange project. It specifies Data Governance and handling of data in the project, what types of data are expected to be generated in the project, if and how it will be made open and accessible for verification and re-use. It will also specify how it will be curated and preserved, with details such as ethical, privacy, and security issues.
All beneficiaries are informed of the applicable regulations around human participation, informed consent, data processing, data security, and pertinent regulations such as GDPR or H2020 Ethics or FAIR guidelines. When personal data collection or processing is started, the DMP information will be updated accordingly to include updated data summaries, consent forms, compliance, and institutional approval where necessary. Processing of personal data will respect the Data Protection Principles. This document provides an overview of data handling in the project and provides the initial guidelines for the project. The project will support openness according to the EU FAIR approach and the principle “as open as possible, as closed as necessary” together with the project ambition of “Open by Default”.
This document is an update of D11.5: Data Management Plan – Initial Version and D11.7 Data Management Plan 2 and supersedes those documents. Changes to previous versions are detailed in the introduction section.’
