The sleep research laboratory produces anonymised data for an open sleep data bank according to the principles of open science.
Each year, during the Open Science Week a person or unit of the University of Eastern Finland is awarded as the contributor for open science and open access. The award was now given for the eighth time and handed over to SmartSleep Lab, represented by Senior Researcher, Project Manager Samu Kainulainen and Laboratory Engineer Teemu Laitinen.
SmartSleep Lab is a research laboratory based on the principles of open science, which offers unique facilities and opportunities for sleep research and enables health technology actors to have a versatile testing environment. The open data sleep research laboratory, developed for research, development, innovation, and teaching activities, is a laboratory complex focused on measuring sleep, alertness, and physiological functions. SmartSleep Lab is an example of close collaboration between the hospital, university, university of applied sciences and companies.
The sleep research laboratory allows the production of anonymised data collected from volunteers to be published in an open sleep data bank according to the principles of open science. Previously, there has been little open information available on healthy sleep. Open sleep datasets can be used for numerous Finnish and international studies as well as for the use of companies developing diagnostic methods and health technology devices.
