9. Data governance procedures

The partners should agree on an application procedure for re-use of data early on in the project, so that all project partners (and any possible third parties) know the conditions for additional research using the specific dataset. This will provide the necessary information so that new research applications to utilize the data can already take the data application time and potential costs for re-using the data into consideration during the proposal phase, before the application is sent to the targeted call. The feasibility of disseminating this information in the proposal phase should be investigated. It should be noted that these procedures are often much more time- and resource-consuming than expected.
