In May 2011, the EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) set out their expectations concerning the management and provision of access to EPSR-funded research data.
A range of institutional policies and practices can satisfy the expectations. They encourage approaches aligned to EPSRC expectations which are appropriate to the institution's structures and cultures.
The expectations arise from seven core principles - aligned with Research Councils UK's principles on data sharing.
In order to meet EPSRC expectations the University has developed an action plan.
