TIER2: Enhancing Trust, Integrity and Efficiency in Research through Next-Level Reproducibility

Start Date: 01/01/2023
End Date: 31/12/2025
Funding: HORIZON-WIDERA-2022-ERA-01-41

TIER2 aims to boost knowledge on reproducibility, create tools, engage communities, implement interventions and policy across different contexts to increase re-use and overall quality of research results.

TIER2 will centre epistemic diversity by selecting three broad research areas – social, life, and computer sciences, and two cross-disciplinary stakeholder groups – research publishers and funders to systematically investigate reproducibility across contexts. Through coordinated co-creation with these communities, TIER2 will:

  • examine the epistemological, social, and technical factors that shape reproducibility across contexts
  • build a state-of-the-art evidence-base on extent and efficacy of existing reproducibility interventions and practices
  • co-create techniques of scenario-planning, backcasting, and user-centred design to select, prioritise, adapt, and implement new tools to enhance reproducibility across contexts.

TIER2 will contribute to increasing the re-use and overall quality of research results and consequently boost trust, integrity and efficiency in research.
