Universities of Helsinki and Jyväskylä were rewarded for their efforts in open science
The Open Science and Research Initiative organised its annual Open Science and Research Forum on November 11th 2015. Two organisations were, for the first time, rewarded for their efforts in open science with the Open Science Award for Promoting Openness. The two organisations were the University of Jyväskylä and the University of Helsinki. The University of Jyväskylä received the award for the most comprehensive measures for promoting openness and visibility. The University of Helsinki was awarded for being the highest ranking organisation in the assessment of operational cultures of higher education institutions. Our warmest congratulations to both organisations for their excellent work in promoting openness!
