Leverhulme-Bridges and Behavioural Science GRP
Colloquium Series: Scientific Reproducibility
Bridges will host a colloquium series on scientific reproducibility. This series responds to the increasing concerns over the (ir)reproducibility of experimental results across many scientific disciplines.
The colloquium series is open to all and would be especially relevant to those interested in the quality of experimental research, regardless of discipline. It will feature speakers from physics, psychology, pharmacology, statistics, medicine, and meta-research.
Bridges is a doctoral scholarship programme funded by the University of Warwick and the Leverhulme Trust, which aims to 'bridge' the mathematical and social sciences. This colloquium series is supported and funded by the Behavioural Science Global Research Priorities Programme.
