Boosting the reproducibility of research

“Recent years have seen perceptions of a “reproducibility crisis” grow in various disciplines. Scientists see poor levels of reproducibility as a severe threat to scientific self-correction, the efficiency of research processes, and societal trust in research results. A major Horizon Europe-funded project named TIER2 starts this month to study these issues and improve reproducibility across diverse scientific contexts….

The interdisciplinary TIER2 consortium comprises ten members from universities and research centers across Europe. They share a long history of successful cooperation and have extensive experience in completed EU projects, especially in the fields of Open Science, Research Integrity, and Science Policy: Know Center (Austria), Athena Research Center (Greece), Amsterdam University Medical Center (Netherlands), Aarhus University (Denmark), Pensoft Publishing (Bulgaria), GESIS Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences (Germany), OpenAIRE (EU), Charite? – University of Medicine Berlin (Geramany), Oxford University (UK), and Alexander Fleming Biomedical Sciences Research Center (Greece)….”
