Abstract The Urban Regeneration and the Environment Programme (URGENT) is a wide-ranging research programme concerned with the restoration and regeneration of urban conurbations in the UK. Its aim is to integrate urban ecological and environmental research across the geological, terrestrial, freshwater and atmospheric sciences. It is funded and managed by the UK Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) as one of their thematic programmes, but works in partnership with city authorities, industry and regulatory bodies. The URGENT programme has funded 41 projects in UK Institutes and Universities covering a wide variety of scientific research and is generating data, models and other information outputs across a broad spectrum. In anticipation of the creation of this valuable data resource and in response to the need to disseminate the results of the research as widely as possible, data management and quality assurance methods were implemented at the start of the programme. The evolution of the URGENT data management plan, its implementation within the research programme and the lessons learnt for the future are discussed.
