Swiss Reproducibility Network

To promote rigorous research and robust results in Switzerland.

Local Node Leaders Local Node Activities How to join

Local Nodes of the SwissRN build the backbone of the network by initiating and coordinating activities at universities and other research institutions. Activities of local nodes are manifold, e.g.

  • open research working groups,
  • ReproducibiliTea journal clubs,
  • organisation of training activities such as carpentries workshops,
  • grant and ethics peer review groups etc.

The organisation of local nodes differs from institution to institutions from a formalized administration to informal grassroot groups. SwissRN encourages to ensure that membership is open to academic and research staff (at all levels) and professional services staff. Each Local Node has a Local Network Leader providing the point of contact for SwissRN.
