Data Management Planning presentation at JISC workshop

  1. 1. RoaDMaPLEEDS RESEARCH DATA MANAGEMENT PILOTData management planning Proudfoot, RoaDMaP Project ManagerRichard Hall, Professor of Spinal Biomechanics
  2. 2. RoaDMaP activityCurrent practice DMP • Tim Banks, Faculty IT Manager, regularly using for ESRC applications Yes 44% • Research data risk assessment for all funding applications and No 56% awards (in theory) • mixed practice across Faculties
  3. 3. Survey Comments “Required as part of the ethical approval process” “Mostly covered in NHS Ethics submission” “Completing such a plan presupposes that there is support staff available.” “It was fairly ropey - not something I took very seriously for the application” “This is completely unnecessary as a requirement. Research is supposed to be innovative. Most things cannot be foreseen.”
  4. 4. What has worked/is working• “A data management plan ... must be created for each proposed research project or funding application.”• Practical improvements to DMPOnline - sharing plans• Replace or refresh existing processes Lessons learnt• DMPOnline: not all funders equally well served; word length• Example DMPs can be reassuring – not all DMPs complex• Colleagues concerned about „new role‟ in DMP
  5. 5. What challenges remain &approach• “Data management plans should take account of and ensure compliance with relevant legislative frameworks”• Joined up approach Ethics Policy/Data Management Planning• Cultural change: feedback loop, flexibility in how requirement met• Internal IT systems – data exchange / feeds• Models of DMP ownership• Institutional templates / boilerplate text
  6. 6. What DCC / MRD activitywould help• Continue to enhance DMPOnline: coordinate testing across funders / projects; funder compliant formats; funder templates; alert function to review• Work with Je-S: ensure no duplication of effort• Co-ordinate policy work with JULIET• Testimony of benefits to research, quantification of benefits
  7. 7. Case Study - SpineFXAims: To develop highly-skilled researchers capable of deliveringeffective solutions to Spinal Disease and Trauma and to significantlyenhance the European Research Area as a global leader in BiomedicalEngineering In the public and private sectors. • Deliver cutting-edge inter-related research projects • Bridge the gap between academia, industry and healthcare … with a focus on SMEs Research • Transfer new knowledge and skills to the industrial and healthcare sectors Enhanced • Disseminate SpineFX output through a selection of delivery ERA vehicles Improved Technology • Provide a multidisciplinary training programs in cutting-edge Patient public and commercial research environments Training • Deliver leading cross- and beyond-network training events Benefit • Build a robust inter-professional training framework
  8. 8. Case Study - SpineFX osteoporosis metastases trauma • Bone Mechanics and Damage , Vienna • Spinal Metastases, Leeds Basic • Spinal Biomechanics and Load Sharing, Hamburg Science • Disc Mechanobiology, Bern Years 1 to 4 • Spine Model, AnyBodyOrientated • Diagnostic Tools for Fracture Risk Prediction, ViennaResearch • Pathology Specific Augmentation, BoneSupport + Bern • Cement Injection Technology, Leeds Applied • Interface of Fixation Devices, Ulrich + HamburgResearch
  9. 9. Case Study - SpineFX Imaging Mechanical Contextual
  10. 10. Case Study - SpineFXPart of Original EU ITN proposal• Included in the Management ResourceActivities slow initially:• Lack of Institutional Support• Delay in Provision• Competing Priorities in the Debt-ridden UK EconomyRCUK and EU Horizon 2020 (FP8) plans and JISC Roadmap opportunity have provided fresh impetus
  11. 11. Case Study - SpineFXActivities thus far:• Working through DMPOnline & resulting plan• Interviews with researchers and fellows • Cultural as well as procedural change• Shaping institutional policy and activities• Written into current EU project under negotiation • €13.4 M over 5 years
  12. 12. Case Study - SpineFXLesson learnt:• Benefits • Easy access to the research group data • Instils a culture of co-operation from the outset when using data • Enhances research through additional governance structures • Must be part of the research activity from the planning stage• Benefits accrued when: • Researchers at the „coal-face‟ are included in the planning • A requirements specification is developed • Project risk assessment is undertaken to indentify challenges.
  13. 13. Case Study - SpineFXLessons learnt• Challenges • Institutions need to be resourced correctly (staff, time, data storage facility…) • You‟ll always use the space available • Even the simplest data, needs a lot of thought and needs researcher engagement • Changes in researcher technology • Understanding the researcher requirements.
