EMHASIS should establish rules on data property, sharing and right of the first use, including necessary metadata for fair sharing in accordance to the EU policy of open data within the data management plan. This involves the property of data, duration of confidentiality for data involving private companies, principles that address consortium agreements in EU or national projects and of novel methods and techniques.
An operational Data Management Plan (DMP) is currently implemented within the related EPPN2020 project providing transnational Access and addressing data management. Within EMPHASIS a DMP which can serve as a template for further partner activities will be elaborated to reduce the loss of data and increase the availability and reusability of data according to the legal and ethical standards. In general plant phenotyping data are generated during the research process, that are used for it, or that are the result of the research process and may occur in different media types and formats (as numerical data, images, documents, texts etc.) during the data life cycle. The metadata in this context are important for the re-use of research data ensuring also the possible verification of research results by third parties addressed by Minimum Information on Plant Phenotyping Experiments (MIAPPE). In general research data should be published and EMPHASIS will strongly encourage that data should be published in a way that access to these data is enabled and possible, e.g. via a web interface or a citable data publication.
Research activities between two or multiple partners will be supported by agreements including data management issues, currently a template of such an agreement is used within the EPPN2020 projects and will be adapted for EMPHASIS.
