Open science and the different ways to implement it - open access to research data, publications, research processes and research methods - provide many advantages for the researcher. Openness increases the societal impact and possibility for innovations. 

LUT Universities (LUT University and LAB University of Applied Sciences) are committed to the principles of openness in its research, innovation and publishing activities.

As open as possible, as closed as necessary.
