The CRC is ready to partner with research teams in the preparation of winning grant proposals. In addition to our core set of expert capabilities and resources as outlined on the CRC Services page and in the Resources Allocation Policy (available on the Policies & Procedures page), the CRC maintains the following guidance for use in proposal preparation.

Data Management Plan

Many federal funding agencies, including NIH and most recently NSF, are requiring that grant applications contain data management plans for projects involving data collection. To support researchers in meeting this requirement, the Center for Research Computing, together with the Notre Dame Data Management Working Group, is providing guidance on creating such plans.

PIs can find here some information that should help them prepare the Data Management Plans for their proposals. More detailed questions can be sent to the following email address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. This email will direct your request to the Data Management Working Group, and you should expect that someone will contact you within one day. We encourage you to check the FAQs of particular agencies before sending your questions to us.

Data Management Services at the University of Notre Dame

Several ND departments or centers can help you design and implement a Data Management Plan for your proposal. These include (links will lead you to data services offered):
