Introduction

EPSRC has certain expectations around the management and sharing of data generated during the course of EPSRC-funded research. Many of these relate to institutional responsibilities, but some require actions from researchers. This bootcamp will outline the expectations that relate to researchers’ responsibilities and explain how these can be met.
