The purpose of the TheFSM project is to deliver an industrial data platform that has the potential to significantly modernize the procedure of how food certification takes place in Europe. By facilitating the exchange and connection of data between different food safety actors who are interested in sharing information critical to certification the project is going to accelerate the pace by which this group adopts digital innovation and offers data-driven services to its clients around the world.
Following the European Commission’s recommendations, this deliverable describes the FAIR management of the research data sets processed for TheFSM: The Data Management Handling Plan (DMP) shall ensure that TheFSM follows the European Commission’s guidelines on making our data FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, reusable). The DMP outlines the data management policy adopted in TheFSM Project. The document itself is a living document. The first version of the DMP was submitted in M6, this document represents the second iteration of the deliverable to be submitted in M24. A final version will be submitted in M36. Data management during pilots and validation phase of the project is addressed in a local DMP submitted in WP6, deliverable 6.1.
In addition, earlier or irregular updates will be made whenever significant changes arise (e.g. new data, changes in consortium policies or consortium composition).
The objective of a DMP is to define how data will be created, how it will be documented, who will be able to access it, where it will be stored, who will back it up and whether (how) it will be shared and preserved
