Research data

Research data and data management are an integral part of research. Tampere higher education community continually produces new data, and therefore we at the higher education community provide services and guidance for research data management.

Research data are part of our Open Science and Research policy, as well as the Open Science action plans of Tampere University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences. According to the policy, central descriptive information (metadata) of the research data should always be open. Research data are as open as possible, as closed as necessary, depending on the nature of the data.

Our library assists in data management and gives wide-ranging guidance in open science. We are developing a Data Service that supports researchers and research, development and innovation (RDI) projects. Our independent institute the Finnish Social Science Data Archive (FSD) is an expert organisation in digital research data that curates and preserves data collected to study society, population and cultural phenomena.

We like to offer our researchers, staff members and students good opportunities to increase their data management competence so that the research data produced within the higher education community will be of premium quality.
