(This event replaces the previously advertised seminar with Dr Ben Barr)
How do we respond to the reproducibility crisis in academia? In this talk I will focus on some practical solutions such as open science and good research practices that can help make our research findings more robust. While there are a number of solutions that can be implemented by individual researchers, there are wider issues, for example around incentives and skills training, that require cultural change. To this end we have started the Robust Research Initiative at the University of Oxford, which is mostly driven by early career researchers. I will give an overview of our current and planned activities that aim to turn the reproducibility crisis into a reproducibility opportunity.
