From 29th March 2018, the AHRC will be removing their requirement for a Technical Plan to be submitted in grant applications. In its place applicants will be required to submit a Data Management Plan. This will be mandatory for all Research Grants, Follow on Funding and Leadership Fellows proposals.

The Data Management Plan focuses more on data storage, data sharing and the methodologies that will be used to create the data. It also asks questions of the ethical and legal considerations of collecting and releasing the data. The AHRC announcement and FAQs are available on their website and further support is available from the University of Cambridge Research Data Management team.
