Open science in my PhD

”Science should be transparent and accessible to everyone. Today, I firmly believe that science goes hand in hand with openness.

Umpio provides researchers with a tool for processing sensitive data

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.
