Consortium projects:

If Aalto is a coordinator in the research project: To ensure that the partner organizations also have an opportunity to check the DMP, we kindly ask you to coordinate this process with your project partners. Once the process is complete, please submit the DMP to [email protected] for a final check-up by following the steps outlined above. 

If Aalto is a partner in the research project, the coordinating organization will lead the writing of the DMP. Aalto Research Services will be happy to support your DMP writing, and at the same time, ensure that the said DMP follow Aalto policies and practices. Therefore, we kindly ask you to enquire the coordinator about an opportunity to review the DMP before it is submitted to the Academy of Finland.
