Costing data management

Many research funders allow research data management costs to be included in funding applications. Such costs may include the cost of

  • active data storage
  • adequate backup facilities
  • external transcription
  • preparing data for sharing
  • long-term data preservation
  • specialist training to ensure effective data management

All such costs should be fully justified and discussed with your discipline lead, and full details of costing your research proposal can be found in the Research Toolkit.
