German Reproducibility Day

The German Reproducibility Network invites you to the first German Reproducibility Day:

When: 16 November 21, 1pm - 5pm
Where: Online (Zoom)

The German Reproducibility Day is dedicated to all stakeholders of the scientific landscape in Germany and beyond. The first event aims to raise awareness and discuss the relevance of reproducible and robust research, why a strong network of initiatives working towards open research in Germany is needed, and what this network’s role and mission should be. Specific examples from GRN members will be used to show how to implement and promote reproducibility. There will also be enough space for social interaction and exchange.

Reproducibility for Everyone (R4E) is a community-led education project to increase adoption of open research practices at scale. R4E volunteer co-instructors run over 20 workshops per year at premier scientific conferences. Since 2018, R4E volunteers have run workshops on 6 continents for thousands of researchers!

This June, we want to highlight the impact of R4E’s work so far with the #R4EtaughtMe campaign. Please help amplify the lessons learned by researchers all over the world by sharing our #R4EtaughtMe posts!
