A research permit is required for all research, development projects and theses that are targeted at the staff or students at HAMK (e.g. surveys).
Guidelines for research permit applicants
Applying for a research permit
HAMK’s research permit application form can be found at the bottom of the page. The application must make clear the researcher’s name, the title of the research, the research goals and the research problems addressed, the schedule and HAMK’s role in the research. An approved research plan must also be attached to the completed application form.
Processing of applications in HAMK
When your application is received by HAMK, it is first checked and then sent for assessment by the dean who covers the research topic in question. After this, the application is then approved by the Vice Rector. It is a good idea to reserve a sufficient amount of time for this process.
HAMK always carefully considers in each case whether or not information relating to students and personnel should be given for use by researchers. If you do receive permission to use personal data, make sure to comply with the relevant legislation and obligations (Personal Data Act 621/1999). The researcher commits to destroying the personal data once the research results have been published.
Charges for research permits
There is a charge for the provision of personal data. HAMK charges €70/hr (+VAT) for the gathering, compiling, and delivery of the data. The minimum charge is one hour, after which there is a charge for every half hour.
If you are a HAMK student and you would like to take as the focus of your thesis or project work the students or personnel involved in a particular field of education or educational task, then make contact directly, together with the supervisor for your thesis/project work, with the dean in question.
