The world of research is not working as well as it could be. On all sides we see issues with reproducibility, questionable research practices, barriers and walls, wasteful research, and flawed incentive and reward systems. If we want research to be more effective in helping to solve the problems our world currently faces, we have to be better.

Integrating Open Science Learning into Higher Education: A GenR Theme – Jan/Feb ’19

The Open Science learning theme will take two approaches to the question of how to integrate Open Science practices into higher education. The first, will be to examine ways for students to get on board — using Open Science methods, using open source tools, or being made aware of how to get ‘more’ credit and attribution. The second approach, being about trends and innovations in ways of teaching, for example ‘The Carpentries’ an open peer-learning network for data, software, and library skills with the formula of being ‘welcoming’ and making good use of the wealth of teaching methods available.

de-RSE – Research Science Engineers: A New Association in Germany

An interview by GenR with members of the newly forming German association of Research Software Engineers – de-RSE. The association is being formally constituted in late November 2018 (next week 26th Nov., Berlin) and will provide a new support network for the wider software community. Highlights being a summer 2019 conference in Potsdam, and a fellowship programme. The interview is the first in a series of article in GenR’s theme ‘Socializing Infrastructures‘ and we take the opportunity to ask de-RSE for their comments on Open Science infrastructures and ‘software as infrastructure’.
