Open science in Academy of Finland’s funding: fall 2022

Do you need tips for creating your publication plan or describing the key data management issues in your Academy of Finland’s funding application? Did you know that applicants must take into account the Academy’s guidelines on open access to scientific publications and Academy’s policies on data management and open data already at the application stage?

In the review and decision-making, the Academy takes into account the plans for open science related to the implementation of the research project as part of the promotion of open access to research outputs on the one hand, and as part of the implementation of responsible science on the other. Open science is one of the Academy’s science policy objectives that are taken into account when funding decisions are made.

In the trainings organized by the library, you will get the best tips for drawing up a publication plan, and you will hear what to consider in the data management section. The trainings have the same content and are arranged remotely as follows:

  • Wednesday, August 31st at 10.00-11 am (in Finnish)
  • Thursday, September 1st at 10.00-11 am (in English)

Handling personal data

When you process personal data or identifiable data, compliance with data protection regulation is essential. In research projects, this means informing research subjects with the privacy notice, documenting processing operations and assessing the risks related to the processing of personal data. The aim of the training is to learn to identify data protection issues relevant to your research.
