Wellcome Trust – Data, software and materials management and sharing policy
To guide researchers on how to manage and share data, software and materials that arise from Wellcome-funded research and outputs management plans.
As a charity, Wellcome works to ensure that the results of the research we fund are applied for the public good. This includes creating an environment that enables and incentivises researchers to maximise the value of their research outputs, including data, software and materials. We expect our researchers to manage research outputs in a way that will achieve the greatest health benefit. This may involve making outputs widely available or using intellectual property (IP) as a tool to help protect and commercialise an original idea, product or technology.
