About the talk
How can an open research working group help drive a research culture change at the institutional level? Reproducible Research Oxford a.k.a. RROx (“rocks”) has been working to achieve this by (i) building cross-disciplinary communities, (ii) providing training and promoting practices that are beneficial to research communities, and sustainable for researchers, and (iii) liaising with stakeholders to inform the design of policy.
