Data Cleaning Day is organized for the first time at University of Helsinki today, Thursday the 23rd of May. The idea of this day is that researchers would check the content of their data folders and the quality of their data management. We asked evolutionary biologist Jonna Kulmuni how does she keep her data in order.
The Umpio service is an answer to researchers’ queries about how to process sensitive personal data. The service was developed and tested on during last year, and the service will be further developed. At the moment, Umpio offers a more efficient and lighter solution for storing sensitive data than a dedicated server.
At the beginning of 2019, University of Helsinki (UH) Data Support together with the Faculty of Medicine conducted a survey of the faculty Principal Investigators about where data is stored during a project and where it is made available after the project. Almost 50 Principal Investigators participated in the survey. More than half of the researchers were affiliated only to University of Helsinki and around a quarter were affiliated both to the University and HUS.
