Open Science at the University of Turku

The objective of the University of Turku is to develop an operational culture where every level of the University operates by the principles of open science.

Openness is a central principle in research activities and one of the five basic values of the University of Turku.

One of the policy programmes in the University's new strategy for 2016-2020 is promoting open science. The goal is that the principles of open science are adopted in the whole University.

The University develops the openness of research data, scientific publication and research methods by developing new modes of operation and policies. This is supported by versatile training, instructions and communications.

The policy programme of open science is carried out by the OpenUTU project appointed by the Rector.
