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 institution: from a formalised 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 Node Leader providing the point of contact for SwissRN.
