Post-Award Process

 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.

More information is available in  the flowchart below. See also the CRA development process and proposal process flow charts.

This flow chart provides an overview of key milestones for awardees.  For more information on the Belmont Process, please see the CRA development process and proposal process flow charts.

Data Policy and Implementation

The Belmont Forum has adopted a data policy which includes the following principles:

Data should 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

The Belmont Forum is supporting an e-Infrastructures and Data Management project to establish recommendations on how the Belmont Forum can implement a more coordinated, holistic and sustainable approach to the funding and support of global change research. The project has produced an Implementation Plan and basic Data Management Plan Template to foster long term management and organization of project-generated data.
