Management of research data

Research data is important for Maastricht University. It plays an increasingly important role in the scientific process. Research data should therefore be carefully managed, and stored in an ethically responsible manner that allows re-use and verification of research results. UM has issued a Data Mangement Code of Conduct  . The term data management covers all of the actions that ensure that research data is findable, accessible and interpretable, both now and in the future. The Code of Conduct includes guidelines on topics such as the organisation, documentation, storage, sharing and archiving of research data.
