D7.2 – Data Management Plan

Deliverable 7.2 - Data Management Plan, was submitted by CzechGlobe with contributions from all partners in November 2023. The description of the deliverable is available below and the full deliverable is at the end for download.

"As a research project funded under the Horizon Europe programme of the European Commission, PLUS Change will follow all rules on Open Science, Open Research Data and Research. When research data are well organised, well stored, and accessible, their validity can be monitored at all times and the result is high-quality, efficient research and cost savings. The PLUS Change consortium aims to contribute to open science policy and practices by guaranteeing that research data is made findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR). This will be achieved through a project-specific Data Management Plan (DMP), which will ensure that research data used and generated within PLUS Change will be managed in a resilient and transparent way.

The purpose of this DMP is to provide an analysis of the main elements of the data management policy that will be applied with regard to all the datasets to be generated in PLUS Change including the process, methodology and policy on data generation/collection, handling, archiving/ preservation and data application.

This data management plan (DMP) is a Deliverable as part of Task 7.2 within Work Package 7. The DMP has been developed in close collaboration with project partners who provided information on their planned usage and generation of research data, along with their institutional policies on data management. The DMP will be updated throughout the project, to reflect emerging data management needs. A final DMP is an additional Deliverable in Task 7.2, due at the end of the project.

The project consortium has defined the expected used and generated data types and their description based on a questionnaire filled out by partners in coordination with WP leaders. This process of defining data types serves also as a process of identifying data management challenges, overlaps in data needs, and possible synergies in data needs across the project. In particular, it serves to foster cooperation between the research and practice partners in the consortium to match together data needs and availability of datasets and material held by the practice partners from their previous and ongoing work."

D6.1 – CDE plan, accompanied by launch of online project hub

Deliverable 6.1 - CDE plan, accompanied by launch of online project hub, was submitted by ISOCARP Institute with contributions from CzechGlobe and Biobased Creations in August 2023. The description of the deliverable is available below and the full deliverable is at the end for download.

"This Deliverable is part of Task 6.1, within Work Package 6. The Plan is a comprehensive strategy designed to effectively communicate the project’s objectives, findings and results to different target audiences, while also outlining the key strategies and activities that will be employed to achieve maximum impact of project outcomes. The plan starts by introducing purpose and scope of the CDE efforts, highlighting the project’s commitment to addressing challenges related to climate change, biodiversity, and human well-being through innovative land use strategies. The plan identifies the three primary audience groups – civil society, planners and policy makers, and academia – and places a strong emphasis on active stakeholder engagement in the two-way-co-creation of results, and on creative arts and storytelling methodologies to support these processes of co-creation and effective communication. By executing the planned communication, dissemination and exploitation activities, the Key-Performance Indicators (KPIs) defined in chapter 7 will be achieved. The activities, as described in the Implementation & Roadmap chapter, are divided into 3 stages of implementation, aimed to build an audience, expand practice case experiences and progress, and finally disseminate and exploit beyond PLUS Change duration. Finally, this document is accompanied by the launch of the project website, that will be continuously updated to reflect the project’s outcomes."
