”Science should be transparent and accessible to everyone. Today, I firmly believe that science goes hand in hand with openness. When I started my PhD couple of years ago, I did not even know what open science meant. Since then, I have taken baby steps towards a more sustainable science culture.” In this blog post, University of Helsinki doctoral student Julia Kemppinen writes on a practical level how she learned to understand the importance of open science and how she implements open science practices in her research.

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.
