This document is the deliverable “D1.3 – Data management plan v.1” of the European project “SIMPATICO - SIMplifying the interaction with Public Administration Through Information technology for Citizens and cOmpanies” (hereinafter also referred to as “SIMPATICO”, project reference: 692819).
The Data Management Plan (DMP) describes the types of data that will be generated and/or gathered during the project, the standards that will be used, the ways in which data will be exploited and shared (for verification or reuse), and in which way data will be preserved. This DMP has been prepared by taking into account the template of the “Guidelines on Data Management in Horizon 2020” [Version 2.1. of 15 February 2016]. The elaboration of the DMP will allow SIMPATICO partners to address all issues related with data protection, including ethical concerns and security protection strategy. SIMPATICO takes part in the Open Research Data Pilot (ORD pilot); this pilot aims to improve and maximise access to and re-use of research data generated by Horizon 2020 projects, such as the data generated by the SIMPATICO platform during its deployment and validation. Moreover, under Horizon 2020 each beneficiary must ensure open access to all peer-reviewed scientific publications relating to its results: these publications shall be made also available through the public section of the SIMPATICO website. All these aspects have been taken into account in the elaboration of the DMP.
A first version of the deliverable “D1.3 – Data management plan v.1” has been released at the beginning of the project (M6). This version is an update of D1.3 produced at project month M16, after the detailed definition of the project use-cases and the revision of the ethics-related aspects of the project by the Ethics Advisory Board, and taking into account the feedback collected during the 1st year project review. A revised deliverable is expected at the end of the project (“D1.4 – Data management plan v.2”, at M36). However, the DMP will be a living document throughout the project, and these initial versions will evolve during the SIMPATICO lifespan according to the progress of project activities.
Starting from a brief illustration of the SIMPATICO project, and of the ethical concerns raised by the project activities, this report describes the procedures of data collection, storing and processing, with a final overview on SIMPATICO security protection strategy. This report does not cover the general concerns related to ethics and data protection, as they are the focus of dedicated deliverables already submitted – namely reports “D1.5 – Ethics compliance report”, “D8.1 – H – Requirement no. 1”, and “D8.2 – POPD – Requirement no. 2”.
