“Reproducibility is essential for the advancement of science,” said Dr. McCann, project co-lead, Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin. “iRISE will develop an evidence-based roadmap for improving reproducibility that will benefit researchers and policymakers alike.”
The iRISE project will focus on three key areas:
- Derive a framework for the development, assessment, and implementation of interventions to improve reproducibility.
- Conduct empirical studies of both technical and practice-based solutions to increase reproducibility.
- Disseminate all findings and training resources on the drivers and consequences of increasing reproducibility.
The iRISE project will also have a strong emphasis on equity, diversity, and inclusion. The project team will consult with a diverse range of stakeholders to help to ensure that the solutions identified are relevant and effective for all researchers.
The iRISE project will run for three years and will have a budget of €2.6 million. The iRISE consortium is led by Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin and involves 15 European partners and stakeholders from across the globe.
“We are excited to embark on this ambitious project,” said Professor Sena, project co-lead, University of Edinburgh. “iRISE has the potential to make a significant contribution to elevating the quality, reliability and reusability of scientific evidence while fostering a positive research culture”
