3 February 2022, Open Science Café with Shalini Kurapati, Liise Lehtsalu and Emma Lazzeri

The Data Management Plan (DMP) is not just a mandatory deliverable in Horizon Europe funded projects: it is a structured way of thinking about research data management. The DMP helps researchers to focus on the details of the data lifecycle, to refine the workflow and, most importantly, to avoid making fatal mistakes such as underestimating data management costs. We understand what a Data Management Plan is and how to write it with Liise Lehtsalu, Emma Lazzeri and moderated by Shalini Kurapati.

Liise coordinates and supports the activities of the Research Data Management working group, including the Research Data Management Roadmap for Eurac Research, and works with researchers on integrating open science practices into their projects. She is a member of the Research Data Alliance and the European Association of Research Managers and Administrators (EARMA).

Emma Lazzeri works for the GARR Consortium on the definition of strategies, tools, training and information on open science issues. Emma coordinates the ICDI (Italian Computing and Data Infrastructure) Task Force for the National Competence Centre for Open Science, FAIR and EOSC. She is part of several international boards related to EOSC and Open Science and collaborates in both national and European projects and initiatives.

Shalini Kurapati works as an Open Science and Research Data Management Fellow at Politecnico di Torino (adjunct role)Her main role is as co-founder and CEO of, dealing with evaluation and validation of Artificial Intelligence data and algorithms. In the past she was part of the first data stewardship project set up at TU Delft, to create skills and roles to advise researchers on RDM and FAIR data. She has 7 years of research experience at the intersection of technology, policy and management. She is also a Certified Information Privacy Professional/Europe (CIPP/E).

Target audience

The webinar is designed for the Italian community and is aimed at researchers, research support staff, technicians, technologists interested in learning more about the international debate on research assessment, and the European Commission's Open Science strategy.
