In my previous foreword, I looked back on two years of NRIN. The development of the network, the website and the events we organized. Looking forward might be a tricky foreword to write. I might create expectations that I might not be able to live up to. However, I do want to look forward with you, because there is so much to look forward to.Not only in the ambitions I have for the future of NRIN, but also in the near future, the next months even.
I eagerly anticipate the launch of our new website. The last couple of months the new website was under development and in this newsletter we introduce our new logo. I’m currently busy filling the new website with all the information from the original website. It is nice to be reminded of the first things we’ve published, and great to see the growth. Moreover, I am pleased with the help from my previous intern Isabella Vos (she participated in the Fiction movie project about which you will read more in this newsletter), who now helps me with writing contents for our website. Together we collected some publications that are worthy of a read, in ‘The persistent p-value’ (also in this newsletter).
I look forward to the work of colleagues, in the recently funded research projects. We had a first meeting with researchers of these projects, which was really inspiring! In this newsletter you find some advice these researchers gave to each other. Concrete ideas to make a change now.
I also look forward to collaborate with the new member of the NRIN working group. Prof. dr. ir. Anthonie Meijers (Eindhoven University of Technology) who joined our team. One of his main concerns is the implementation of the Code of Conduct for Scientific Practice. Our national code is currently under revision. Next to looking forward to the results of that revision, I also look forward to engage with the scientific community to find creative ways to bring and keep it under the attention of everybody involved in scientific research in the Netherlands.
And together with some colleagues, I look forward to the World Conference on Research Integrity. And as usual, upcoming events are listed at the end of this newsletter.
These are some of the things to look forward to in the near future. But moreover, I look forward to meeting many of you at the various upcoming events, to reading about your work in a diversity of publications and to be inspired by the research integrity community!
