There is no national Open Science Policy in Finland, but the Research and Innovation Council, an advisory body chaired by the Prime Minister, has adopted a vision and roadmap for 2030. One of the short-term objectives for cross-sectoral RDI activities and education is “Finland’s status as a pioneer in open science and research increases the attractiveness of the RDI environment.”
In 2017, most of the Finnish universities have published their data policies.
