Manager :

Two new steering groups are being established at the University of Helsinki in 2020 to support the new measures to develop teaching and research through digitalisation that are taken in accordance with the University’s new Strategic Plan. In the upcoming years, the University is investing in development projects related to teaching and research that are considered important by the members of the University community themselves – projects whose success or realisation is important for the future of teaching and research.

The steering group on the digitalisation of research has three primary duties: 1) Acting as a preparatory expert group making prioritisation and decision proposals on the development of the university-level conditions for conducting research (in cases where their development requires or significantly benefits from digitalisation) 2)Assessing the University’s investment ability (in order to further digitalisation on the terms of research, not information systems) 3) Commenting on digitalisation projects that are taking place in faculties and other units and are included in the project monitoring portfolio (as well as on their possible expansion onto the University level)

The steering group also has the duty to ensure that the national-level digitalisation vision being currently prepared will be utilised in an appropriate manner at the UH.

Doctoral students are represented in the steering group for the digitalisation of research by one member.
