Active working groups
The Working Group on Funding Open Science and Research
The working group is established by the National Steering Group on Open Science and Research with the objective of designing a funding model for open science and creating a supporting action plan for all areas of openness. The working group is set to meet for the first time on May 30, 2023, and has a two-year term of office. The group consists of a wide-ranging representation of actors who fund and direct research and higher education, research organizations, enablers of open science and research, as well as NGOs promoting research transparency.
Open Science and Research Reference Architecture Working Group
working group is established by the National Steering Group on Open Science and Research with the objective of drawing up an overall picture of open science and research architecture, describing the architecture required for the realization of open science, and identifying the necessary measures to achieve it by groups of actors. From this overall picture, the goal architecture for the realization of open science in the Finnish research community will be formed. The chairpersons of the group are Jukka Heikkilä (Professor Union, 2022, 1st chair) and Susanna Nykyri (University of Tampere, 2023 1st chair)

Open Science for Learned Societies
The Open Science and Research Secretariat has established a working group with the long-term objective of forming a channel for closer collaboration between open science and research coordination and Finnish learned societies. The group's initial objectives are to produce the Open Science Checklist for Learned Societies, establish a channel for identifying the needs and diversity of learned societies in the context of open science and research, and form more permanent structures of interaction to support openness in the work of learned societies. The group is chaired by Salla Karjalainen from the Finnish Society of Sport Sciences. To join the working group, you can register by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The working groups that have completed their work
The Working Group on Openness Solutions for Finnish Science Publications
The working group was established by the National Steering Group on Open Science and Research in February 2021 with the task of preparing a proposal for a sustainable model that guarantees proper operating conditions and open access for Finnish scientific publications. The goal of the working group was to contribute to Objective 4 of the Open Access to Journal and Conference Articles Policy Component, which aims to create a co-funded publication model that enables immediate transparency of research articles published in Finland. The group was chaired by Ossi Naukkarinen from Aalto University.
