Netherlands Spending 3 Million Euros to Fund Replications

[From the website of the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO)] :”NWO is making 3 million euros available for a Replication Studies pilot programme. In this programme, scientists will be able to repeat research that has been carried out by others. The pilot focuses on replicating studies that have a large impact on science, government policy or the public debate. This is the first special funding programme in the world for the repetition of such ‘cornerstone research’. With this initiative NWO wants to facilitate innovation in science and encourage researchers to carry out replication research.” To read more, click here.
