No Need to Panic! DMS and Drop-Ins Happen Weekly at Ebling

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) have a new Data Management & Sharing (DMS) Policy that takes effect in 2023!

There are NIH Data Management & Sharing Drop-In sessions for Spring 2023!

Effective for applications starting January 25, 2023 and after, all NIH-supported researchers producing scientific data will be expected to submit a data management & sharing plan as part of their proposals. Updates on the plan will be expected within annual reporting and non-compliance with the plan after the end of the funding period “may be taken into consideration for future funding decisions for the recipient institution.” (NIH 2023 policy) To read more about the forthcoming policy, visit:
