Promoting expertise in open science: Open Science Expert Training continues

Open Science Expert Training

The Open Science and Research Initiative (ATT) promotes expertise in open science by organising open science expert training that is free of charge and open to all. The programme has been running since autumn 2015 and further sessions will be held at least until the end of 2016.

Our training is targeted at anyone who is interested in open science, such as students, researchers, and those representing libraries, information and research management, researcher schools and other educational establishments, and other personnel groups. Our autumn 2016 expert training will focus on supporting the introduction of open science teaching at institutions of higher education.

In practice: Expert training is organised in collaboration with institutions of higher education, research institutes, and open science networks. Training sessions provide an introduction to open science methods, mainly through example cases, such as speeches given by researchers and organisations' best practices.

Registration: Training sessions that are currently open for registration are listed under the heading Expert Training Programme ( You may currently register for 'Open data and open access publishing' (organised by Aalto University' on 8 April) and 'Open Publishing' (organised by the University of Oulu on 20 April) and ‘Tutkimusprosessin avaaminen' by Lappeenranta University of Technology on 10 May.

Help us arrange training: You can also help us arrange training sessions as a trainer and/or by producing training materials. If you're a researcher, you can also come and talk about your own research from the perspective of open science.

Contact us: Tell us your requirements with regard to open science training, and how you're interested in cooperating with us to promote expertise in open science. Read more about the objectives and implementation of open science training coordination in 2016 (in Finnish).
