Researchers in all scientific disciplines are not only supposed to provide final results; they must also show in detail how they have come to their conclusions. Transparency is necessary to allow for replication or falsification of findings. It is also a driving force behind cumulative research allowing other researchers to build on existing findings and datasets and possibly come to more nuanced conclusions. Data access and transparency give academic research credibility and distinguish it from commercial research activities. This one-day event will bring together actors from different backgrounds and perspectives. Sessions will address the value and challenges of data access and research transparency from the specific viewpoints of researchers, research institutions, funding agencies, and publishers. The workshop will conclude with a roundtable discussion on a future roadmap for improving data access and research transparency in Switzerland and internationally.

The members of the programme committee are: Prof. Peter Farago (FORS), Prof. Paolo Ghisletta (University of Geneva), Prof. Christian Kleiber (University of Basel), Dr. Brian Kleiner (FORS), Prof. Georg Lutz (FORS and University of Lausanne).

Speakers include: Prof. Michael Breen, University of Limerick; Prof. Eva Deuchert, University of St. Gallen; Prof. Nicolas Favez, University of Geneva; André Golliez, opendata.ch; Dr. Ingrid Kissling-Näf, Swiss National Science Foundation; Dr. Raymond Werlen, CRUS, Patrick McCartan, Cambridge University Press; Prof. Yannis Papadopoulos, University of Lausanne; and Prof. Vera Troeger, University of Warwick.
