Research Data Management at Tampere University: Good Practice #4

  • 1. European University Association


Tampere University implemented an Open Science Policy and Action Plan including an institutional approach to Research Data Management. Both documents were developed in 2018 during the creation of the university, following the merger of the University of Tampere and Tampere University of Technology. They provide a framework for doctoral candidates, other researchers and the research support staff on how data should be managed, curated and shared. Moreover, the Library of Tampere University developed two courses addressing RDM and FAIR data practices, which are delivered by the Doctoral School.

This good practice is part of a collection presented in the report "Good Practices in FAIR Competence Education", which aims to provides universities with points of inspiration and practical examples of how fellow institutions and organisations in the higher education sector addressed the need for more RDM and FAIR data-related skills to be taught at the bachelor, master and doctoral levels. The report was developed in the framework of the Fostering FAIR Data Practices in Europe (FAIRsFAIR) project.
