Principle of open research data

At the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, we support the open availability and usability of research data. We participate in the development of Finnish open science through activities such as the National Co-ordination of Open Science.

We take into account the restrictions related to the opening of the data, including the ownership and access rights of the material as well as legislation. When opening research data, the protection of personal data must be ensured.

Where possible, we take the principle of open data into account in planning the study and in the collection of data. One way to ensure the protection of personal data is the anonymization of data
