Share, Learn, Connect
Congratulations on your award and welcome. Use this page to add project work products to the resource library, get an overview of the post-award process, and learn about the Belmont Forum e-infrastructures and data management policy.

Add to the Resource Library
Increase your impact within the Belmont Forum community and beyond. Share your project work products on the Belmont Forum Resource Library using the form below. We want your research posters, articles, and presentations in any format. We can receive and upload the file or a link to the resource elsewhere. Form submissions are emailed to Belmont Forum team and reviewed before uploading to the library. Email us with any questions.
The Post Award process is evolving to help awardees share learning and to help the Belmont Forum community show the cumulative impact of all our projects. The process includes a project Kick-off meeting (optional), mid-term meeting, end-term meeting, and legacy steps. Legacy steps include helping previous awardees find additional resources to continue their work.
Data Policy and Implementation
The Belmont Forum has adopted an Open Data Policy and Principles produced by the e-Infrastructures and Data Management CRA to establish recommendations on a more coordinated, holistic and sustainable approach to the funding and support of global change research. To increase data sharing and foster long term management and organization of project-generated data, basic Data Management Overview questions will be incorporated into all Belmont Forum project applications to encourage all project data to be:
- Discoverable through catalogues and search engines
- Accessible as open data by default, and made available with minimum time delay
- Understandable in a way that allows researchers—including those outside the discipline of origin—to use them
- Manageable and protected from loss for future use in sustainable, trustworthy repositories
More information on why the Belmont Forum requires a data management section in their application process and latest updates on data management can be found on the e-I&DM project website and follow the project on Twitter.
