Open Science is an integral part of the Finnish research community. Through extensive preparations The Finnish Research Infrastructure Committee has published the “Strategy for National Research Infrastructures in Finland 2020–2030”. It is aimed particularly at promoting the development of national nodes for national and international research infrastructures. The community has jointly created a Declaration for Open Science and Research to boost common direction for the development of the research community. Significant amount of Finnish researchers and organisations already participate in development of the EOSC through various Research Infrastructures, EOSC projects or are engaged in EOSC via coordinated national activities.
