|Developing the extended version of Nine Reproducible Things course within the Carpentries Incubator, delivering this to staff within the UKRN network, delivering Train the Trainer courses to upskill staff within the UKRN network who will be teaching the open research/reproducibility content, providing an open, shareable version of the training content under a CC BY licence.
|Support in kind through use of Jisc’s digital research community group (comprising research leaders, researchers and research support professionals) to communicate and gather feedback and by attending stakeholder meetings.
|Oxford’s Data Readiness Group
|Focus on guidance for the implementation of the FAIR Principles, specifically: 1. introduction to the FAIR Cookbook recipes to make and keep data FAIR for the Life Sciences; 2. enhancement of the FAIRsharing registry, on data and metadata standards, inter-related to databases and data policies for All Disciplines; refinement of the FAIRsharing Assistance, and release of the FAIRsharing Educational Programme.
|Developing an open-source curriculum, and training instructors at the universities affiliated with UKRN to prepare them to teach students to conduct quantitative research that achieves state-of-the-art standards of transparency and reproducibility.
