EFC Research Forum workshop – The Replication crisis in science and the role of foundations in tackling it
The EFC’s Research Forum will host a workshop exploring ”The Replication crisis in science and the role of foundations in tackling it” on 16 March at the Cariplo Factory in Milan, hosted by Fondazione Cariplo.
There is an increasing concern in the research community regarding the reproducibility of scientific studies and to what extent statistically significant published research findings are true. As the reproducibility of experiments forms an essential part of the scientific process, the difficulty in replicating and peer-reviewing other experiments has an adverse effect for many fields of science in which significant theories are based upon unverifiable work.
Participants will have the chance to meet like-minded colleagues working in the research philanthropic sector, academics and experts to learn, discuss and connect, inspired by the topic of the replication crisis.
