The aim of this workshop is to give participants theoretical knowledge and practical insights into the factors that contribute to poor research reproducibility, and how to improve the reliability and quality of research. The event is aimed at those who routinely conduct non-clinical studies and experiments (e.g., during the development of technologies to support human and animal health).
