What is the National Research Information Hub?
National Research Information Hub gathers and shares data about research conducted in Finland. In future, information about researchers, publication, research data, ongoing research funding and research infrastructures can be effortlessly found from a single source.
The goal is not to increase the amount of reporting and administrative work, but rather to compile and share existing information. The rationalization of information flows lightens the administrative workload and makes the information more accessible and easier to find. This will benefit researchers, research organizations, funders and parties making decisions based on data.
In addition, research outcomes will be more accessible to citizens using it, since the hub will provide a single, uniform, open and comprehensive access point available for everyone.
The project was launched in 2017 and everything should be ready by 2020.
CSC – IT Center for Science Ltd. is establishing the National Research Information Hub at the behest of the Ministry of Education and Culture.
