This report describes the University of Northampton Research Data Project, conducted over a period of eight weeks in Summer 2010. Following the tried and tested Data Asset Framework (DAF) methodology, the project sought to investigate the types of data held by researchers throughout the university, researchers' existing data management practices, and the risks associated with these practices. It aimed to provide evidence to inform a possible new data management policy and services to satisfy the requirements of researchers and funders. Finally, it hoped to raise awareness amongst researchers about good data management practice, including the provision of short and long term data storage and access.
