Event: Ethics, Evidence & Scientific Reform
Friday 5 April | 1-3pm | Forum theatre, Arts West
Join an interdisciplinary panel of local and international speakers to discuss the role of ethics in reforming scientific practice.
Inappropriate statistical practices, poor research design, and other questionable research practices has led to the ‘replication crisis’ in many scientific disciplines. The challenge we face is how to effect change – how to sustain the credibility revolution. The panellists will first explore the real consequences and damage caused by the replication crisis. Visiting scholars Anne Scheel (Eindhoven University of Technology) and Michèle Nuitjen (Tilburg University) will then open the discussion, which will centre on the role of ethics in reforming scientific practice – from how we train scientists to how we regulate their work.
