Tampere University name and logo
Tampere University is strongly committed to the principles of Open Science. The openness of science ensures that the latest results of research and education are available, in an equal and ethically and materially sustainable manner, not only to all researchers and teachers but also to companies and citizens. Open Science covers research data, publications, software and code, methods, open education and educational resources, as well as Citizen Science. With the Open Science Promoter Award, we want to give recognition and visibility to a person, group, or project that has exemplarily promoted the openness of research and/or education in the Tampere University community.

The winner of the Tampere University Open Science Promoter Award will be announced in May and the award will be presented in the context pf the opening week of the academic year in September. During April, we will collect nominations for the prize winner.

The Open Science Promoter Award is given out to:

  • highlight the importance of Open Science within our university community,
  • strengthen the profile of Tampere University as an organisation that invests in and actively promotes the openness of science,
  • recognise the members of our university community for their achievements and encourage to invest their time and efforts to promoting Open Science, and
  • raise awareness of and share information about effective Open Science practices within the university community.

Nominate your candidate using an online form by 25 April 2022

Nominations are openly invited through the intranet and the communication channels used by the faculties. The award may be granted to a member of the Tampere University community (employee or grant holder) or a group within our community (such as research group or service unit) that has promoted Open Science through their activities.

Nominate your candidate by filling out an online form by 4 p.m. on Monday 25 April 2022.  Please describe the contribution (action, operational model, or similar) that your candidate has made and indicate how this contribution has promoted Open Science practices within the University. The information you provide may be utilised, for example, when communicating about good practices in Open Science.

The winner will be selected by the Open Science Steering Group of Tampere University. The award is worth 5,000 € for a group or 2,000 € for an individual candidate. The award is funded jointly by the University of Tampere Foundation and the Industrial Research Fund at Tampere University of Technology.
