Award for Scottish open research

Award for Scottish open research

The University of Aberdeen is among 3 Scottish universities to secure funding to improve the quality of academic research.

Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh have each been awarded fifty thousand pounds from the Scottish Funding Council (SFC) as part of the UK Reproducibility Network (UKRN), a consortium of academic peers working to improve research quality.

The SFC award brings Scotland in line with English counterparts who had already received funding from Research England.

The funding will be used to promote the uptake of open research practices in institutions across the UK; to align institutional policies and procedures that reward open research; to build a community of trainers in best practice; and to support the evaluation methods and indicators to improve research quality.

Professor Gary Macfarlane, UKRN Institutional Lead at the University of Aberdeen, welcomed this news, saying: “We know that the Scottish Funding Council values open research, and this investment will make a real difference as our institutions put in place the training, evaluation, policies and practices being developed in the UKRN Programme.”
