This presentation will look at the LERU Roadmap for Research Data, which was issued by the League of European Research Universities in January 2014. In a series of seven chapters, the Roadmap discusses a series of issues related to research data management and open data: Policy and Leadership; Advocacy; Selection and Collection, Curation, Description, Citation, Legal Issues; Research Data Infrastructure; Costs; Roles, Responsibilities and Skills; Recommendations. The Roadmap is the first analysis of its kind explicitly to the needs of universities and their researchers. Following a description of the main Recommendations in the Roadmap, the presentation will look at levels of takeup of the Roadmap and its Recommendations based on a recent survey of LERU members. Comparisons with the level of takeup for the LERU Roadmap Towards Open Access will provide instructive insights into how European research-led universities are tackling issues around research data management. Finally, the presentation will draw a number of conclusions about research data management in European research-led universities.
