  1. Very inspiring !
    Next year I would like to co-operate in planning what information materials about the course can be opened with a Creative Commons license.

    That would increase societal impact and allow use as an inspiring example without license negotiations !

    It is recommended, that the licenses for reutilization of the open data of the Finnish public administration are given by a license, which belongs to the Creative Commons license family. The recommended license is Creative Commons Attribution 4.0.
