Q. Is there any transition fund to pay for data sharing if it has not been budgeted in the grant application?
Unfortunately, there is no central transition fund to pay for sharing of research data, if there was no budget in the grant application. Your department/institute might be able to help you paying for this expense.
Q. Where can I find more information about funders’ requirements for data sharing and help available at the University of Cambridge?
We are regularly running Open Data information sessions, which are created to provide you with information about funders’ requirements for data sharing and support available at the University of Cambridge. You can register for these sessions here:
If you are unable to come to the session, get in touch with us – we can organise a dedicated information session at your department and at your convenience.
