At the University of Turku, we aim for as open data and research methods as possible, and as closed as necessary.
Since 2016, the University of Turku's Data Policy and the related action program have guided the university community in the transparency related to the collection, use and management of research data. The policy will be updated during the coming year, e.g. taking into account recent national and international developments in open science and research.
