Is Tuuli just a tool?
Yes and no. Besides the DMPTuuli tool the Tuuli organization maintains national data management guidance and template that helps with creating data management plans. In other words, we produce national content to the tool. We also train new administrators and organize webinars that anyone who is interested on the subject can join.
