MIT Better Science Ideathon. 23 April 2018.

The first MIT Better Science Ideathon brings together teams of people involved in scientific research - including students, researchers, policy makers, publishers, and funders - to explore how the process of science can be improved. There will be a focus on how open science can accelerate scientific progress through fostering collaboration and reproducibility and by reducing the barriers to learning.

Our objectives are four fold. (1) to develop projects to improve the research enterprise; (2) to connect isolated ongoing efforts; (3) to engage social scientists, given the role that socio-political forces have played in molding today’s research structure. (4) to empower students – the future scientists – who are not yet entrenched in the current system to explore fresh ideas.


Anyone with an interest in the process of research is encouraged to attend, including for example: researchers, students, policy makers, academic administrators, research funders, and publishers.
