Proper data management is usually underpinned by providing data management plans (DMPs) for research projects. A DMP defines what happens during and after a project with regards to data including information about origin, collection process, access restrictions, citability, long-term availability or deletion. In addition, responsibilities for data handling are defined. Increasinlgy, more and more funding organizations demand DMPs for grant applications such as:
FWF (mandatory after grant approval)
H2020 (mandatory with option to opt out for a good reason)
ERC (mandatory with option to opt out for a good reason)

The following online tools can be used for creating DMPs:
Also, many funding agencies require a cost calculation for data management in the project application (e.g. personnel, infrastructure, training). The University of Utrecht and the UK Data Service offer tools for estimating the costs of data management.
