The Finnish Research Infrastructure for Public Opinion (FIRIPO) is a multidisciplinary consortium for the study of public opinion, attitude formation and choice behavior. FIRIPO will serve a broad spectrum of academic disciplines and scholars around the world who study public opinion. FIRIPO will also inform the society, especially decision-makers and the media. Through large-scale panel data design, FIRIPO will be able to track developments in public opinion. FIRIPO has four central aims:
1. To systematize and coordinate scientific research on public opinion and choice behavior in Finland;
2. To learn, develop and share (new) methods in public opinion research, and to advise on the use of public opinion in policy-making;
3. To create an open node for public opinion research;
4. To accelerate open science aims through open data and open collaboration in public opinion research in collaboration with the Finnish Social Science Data Archive FSD.
