The German Reproducibility Network (GRN) is a cross-disciplinary consortium that aims to increase trustworthiness and transparency of scientific research by investigating and encouraging the factors that contribute to robust research. We promote training activities and disseminate best practices, conduct and support meta-scientific research, and work with stakeholders to ensure coordination of efforts. GRN’s activities span multiple levels, including researchers, institutions and other stakeholders (e.g., funders, publishers, and Academic Societies).

We support researchers in educating themselves about open science practices, and founding local open science communities.

Reproducibility Initiatives

We connect local or topic-centered Reproducibility Initiatives to a national network, and foster connections between them.


We advise institutions on how to embed open science practices in their work.

Other Stakeholders

We represent the open science community toward other stakeholders in the wider scientific landscape.
