On July 2nd we got together for a hands-on experience in Data Management Plans (DMP). The event started with some presentations and then participants had the chance of putting their heads together to create a DMP for a project. During lunch we went around to ask participants their opinions about data management and the working session they had just participated in.

We interviewed Filipe Lopes from the Instituto de Higiene e Medicina Tropical from Universidade NOVA de Lisboa , about his experience with the workshop.

On 2nd July BioData.pt organized a hands-on session focused on demistifying the concept of Data Management Plan (DMP). The session took place at the recently renovated training room of Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC).

The organizers developed a participatory methodology based on the DMP Common Standard Model, where groups of 6 to 8 participants would create their own DMP (based on a fictitious research project, proposed by the organizing team), by filling in a “DMP Canvas”. The process, introduced by an overall presentation framing the value and the steps to create the DMP, was supported continuously by a team of facilitators from BioData.pt.

This Poster showcases PHENO (brapi.biodata.pt) the Portuguese implementation of BrAPI, which is dedicated to woody plants. PHENO was developed within the scope of the ELIXIR-EXCELERATE - Plant Comunity and BioData.pt plants working group. It provides a means to familiarise researchers with this ELIXIR service, to help their datasets become findable and accessible.
