Research Data Management

Swiss National Science Foundation

The SNSF expects funded projects to follow best practices of research data management. This includes:

European Research Council

Pilot projects from the Horizon 2020 programme funded by the ERC must provide a Data Management Plan and follow good practices of research data management. It is expected that these requirements will be extended to all projects in the next funding programme.

The Geneva Graduate Institute

The Geneva Graduate Institute makes no claims over the data generated through a project, and considers it belongs to the researchers.

We expect the researchers to follow Swiss law, the policies of project funders, and encourage open science whenever possible. Our colleague Céline Vilmen tells you all about legal aspects of research data (copyright, personal data...) in her libguide.

The Research Office has a checklist and guidelines on research ethics, including some relating to research data management. You can check them on their dedicated page.
