The beneficiaries must:
(a)deposit in a research data repository and take measures to make it possible for third parties to access, mine, exploit, reproduce and disseminate —free of charge for any user —the following:
(i)the data, including associated metadata, needed to validate the results presented in scientific publications as soon as possible;
(ii)other data, including associated metadata, as specified and within the deadlines laid down in the ‘data management plan’;
(b)provide information —via the repository —about tools and instruments at the disposal of the beneficiaries and necessary for validating the results (and —where possible —provide the tools and instruments themselves).
