Please, test and give feedback!
The first test version of the Researcher’s profile tool is now ready for use. It will be accessible until September 30, 2021. You can send feedback on the tool at Webropol (both websites are in Finnish). You can login to the test version using your ORCID iD and the data will only be stored in a test database, which will be deleted after the test phase. The feedback will be considered in the development of the service. The errors and malfunctions reported by users will be corrected in the first released version, and other proposals for improvements will also be incorporated where possible.

Finding experts will soon be easier – information on researchers to be made available in the National Research Information Hub
Research.fi portal maintained by the Ministry of Education and Culture. Details of the researchers working in Finland will be made available in a single service, making it easier to find experts in different fields and ensuring that more people can take part in in societal decision-making and in the debate on their own areas in the media.
Researchers can create a public profile in Research.fi, in which they can enter information from the ORCID service, their home organizations and Research.fi. Contact information, education, affiliations, publications, research data, projects and other research activities (such as expert tasks and awards) are some of the information that researchers can include in their profiles. This ensures that the skills of the researchers and their contact details are up to date and easily accessible to decision-makers, research funders, research organizations, the media and companies looking for experts. The parties to which the information may be disclosed is at the researcher’s discretion.
The new service will be launched during 2022 as part of the National Research Information Hub but its introduction depends on the entry into force of the act on the National Research Information Hub. Read more about the new service (in Finnish).
