Initiatives and events
UKRN offers support for initiatives to promote robust and rigorous research, focusing on establishing conversations about reproducibility, providing tools and guidance to promote best practice, and encouraging professional development of researchers. UKRN runs and promotes events and regular workshops on the topic of reproducible research.
UKRN hosts an annual meeting in March each year, and supports an annual conference in September: Reproducibility, Replicability and Trust In Science. We also run regular workshops on the topics of leadership, data management, research culture and methods.
UKRN supports initiatives to encourage appropriate methodology, accountability and the establishment of working groups, as well as promoting conversations around open science and open research, and providing tools that make reproducibility easier.
We produce news to promote examples of reproducible research in the UK, as well as our events and initiatives. Do you want to write about reproducibility in your field? Please contact us about writing for our blog.
