Aalto University has published two new policies: Policy on Open Learning Materials and Policy on Open Research Infrastructures

The policy for open access to theses is also open for commenting. The objective of the policy is that the archivable part of all theses approved from 2024 onwards will in principle be openly accessible.

The 2-year project on open science reference architecture is being finalised. The current material is available in Avoimen tieteen ja tutkimuksen Viitearkkitehtuuri 2030 versio 0.1 - Finn-ARMA - Eduuni-wiki (in Finnish). 

If you are interested in data, two webinars are offered by CSC (both in Finnish).

Women are underrepresented in CEO positions partly because they spend more time outside of the labour market during the years when their careers are most likely to take off. Women also less often work in sales or production, which are common pathways for CEO recruitment.
