The Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet) rounded off 2018 with the news that everyone who gets grant funding from them starting 2019 will need a data management plan. As of yet there are no details, but they write:
You must not send in your data management plan to us when you apply for a grant, but your administrating organisation will be responsible for ensuring that a data management plan is in place when you start your project or corresponding, and that the plan is maintained.
We will be updating this blog when Vetenskapsrådet post more information on this.
