With the Open Science Promoter Award, Tampere University gives recognition and visibility to a person, group, or project that has exemplarily promoted the openness of research and/or education at the University. The recipient of the Open Science Promoter Award at Tampere University will be selected based on the University community’s nominations.

Please nominate your candidate using an online form by 2 June 2023 . Please also include a justification for your choice. The candidate may be a member of the Tampere University community or a group within the community whose approach, operating model or action has notably promoted open science and research practices.   

The award is €5.000 for a group or €2.000 for an individual candidate. The award is funded by The University of Tampere Foundation and Industrial Research Fund at Tampere University of Technology. The Open Science Steering Group will select the recipient of the award by the end of the academic year.  

The award will be conferred at the opening ceremony of the new academic year of Tampere University in September.   

Last year, Doctoral Researcher Annina Lattu was selected as the recipient of the Open Science Promoter Award. In her dissertation, Lattu studies Open Science practices in university-industry collaboration in Finland and China.     

Award to Encourage Open Science Practices  

Tampere University is strongly committed to the principles of Open Science. The Open Science Promoter Award is given out to recognise the members of our University community for their achievements, encourage to invest their time and efforts to promoting Open Science, and raise awareness of effective Open Science practices. The award proposals may be used, for example, when communicating about good practices in Open Science.   

Open Science ensures that the latest results of research and education are available in an equal and ethically and materially sustainable manner to researchers and teachers, companies and citizens. Openness contributes to the development of science, for example, by strengthening the reliability of research, improving the quality of scientific knowledge and increasing opportunities for the exploitation of knowledge in research and teaching. Open Science covers research data, publications, software and code, methods, learning materials and environments, as well as Citizen Science.
