Cancer Research UK is committed to ensuring that the data generated through its funding should be put to maximum use by the cancer research community and, whenever possible, is translated to deliver patient benefit. It is therefore the policy of Cancer Research UK that all data generated as a result of its funding be considered for sharing and made as widely and freely accessible as possible whilst safeguarding intellectual property, the privacy of patients and confidential data. Scientists applying for funding should familiarise themselves with Cancer Research UK's Data Sharing and Preservation Policy.Cancer Research UK Data Sharing Guidelines
Cancer Research UK (CRUK) regards it as good research practice for all researchers to consider at the research proposal stage how they will manage and share the data they will generate. All bidders must provide a data management and sharing plan as part of their application. This plan will be reviewed as part of the funding decision.
