The project is valued at £ 8.5 million over five years and includes £ 4.5 million from RED funding, which will be used to support projects that enhance UK higher education research and knowledge exchange activities.
The University of Sheffield has been funded to lead the national adoption of open research practice.
The University, along with 17 others created by the UK Reproducibility Network (UKRN), has been funded by the Research England Development (RED) Fund to keep the UK at the forefront of the open research agenda and continue to create world-leading research. The highest quality.
The five-year project is valued at £ 8.5 million and includes £ 4.5 million from RED funding.
The funds will be used to support projects that enhance UK higher education research and knowledge exchange activities. This will help make higher education research more transparent, further advancing the UK’s position at the forefront of rigorous and reproducible research.
Open research ensures transparency throughout the research life cycle, promoting rigor, reproducibility and public confidence in research, which is especially important in the digital age to combat misinformation. The benefits of open research practice for improving the quality and integrity of research have been extensively documented, and the UK Government’s R&D Roadmap is recognized as contributing to the improvement of research culture.
The University recently issued a statement on Open Research acknowledging its commitment to these principles and has an active program for the development and training of researchers, which will expand this funding.
