Digital Science is sponsoring Transforming Research Online for a fourth successive year, bringing research leaders across the globe together to discuss research policy, evaluation, portfolio management, funding, dissemination, and impact.
Mike Taylor, Head of Metrics Development at Digital Science, will chair the conference which includes a keynote from Dr Charlene Le Fauve, Senior Advisor to the Chief Officer for Scientific Workforce Diversity, on the opening day. Infectious disease and vaccine research leader Carlos del Rio, Executive Associate Dean for Emory at Grady, will follow on day two. Brian Nosek, Co-Founder and Executive Director of the Center for Open Science will offer opening remarks the final day.
The focus of the conference is about using evidence and data to transform research portfolios and focus, and to improve decision-making. The nature of the conference is to support conversations.
Registration is open and the program committee is inviting proposals for presentations from those shaping research policy and evaluation at their own institutions and more widely. Perspectives from people in government and private funding organisations, research institutes, and academic, non-profit, and commercial organisations are welcome.
Transforming Research conference format will be a series of short pre-recorded presentations followed by interactive discussion with presenters. Themes for the 2020 meeting are: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Research; Basic, Applied and Translational Research; Open Science; and Rigor, Reproducibility, and Integrity in Research.
