Projects are expected to contribute to the following expected outcomes:

  • Facilitated development, implementation and monitoring of interventions in research organisations that increase the reproducibility of scientific results;
  • More collaboration, joint actions by stakeholders, and mutual learning, notably between national reproducibility networks, to increase reproducibility of scientific results;
  • Greater alignment of policies and reduction in disparities between research organisations and between countries in terms of their attention to reproducibility of scientific results;
  • Facilitated development and implementation of training programmes and awareness raising.

These targeted outcomes in turn contribute to medium and long-term impacts:

  • Increased proportion of reproducible results;
  • Increased re-use of scientific results by research and innovation;
  • Greater quality of the scientific production.


Increasing the reproducibility of scientific results, i.e., the possibility for scientists and the scientific community to obtain the same results as the originators, contributes to higher quality and more efficient research processes, more trustworthy results, increasing reuse by other researchers, more effective translation into innovations, and higher return on investments in research (see the scoping report “Reproducibility of scientific results in the EU”[1]).

The aim of this topic is to facilitate the development and implementation of policies and practices, by research performing organisations, research funding organisations, learned societies and publishers that enhance reproducibility of scientific results. The action will support the mutual learning and dissemination of good practices between organisations across the European Union, as well as with relevant organisations outside the European Union, with broad disciplinary representation. It will build expertise and will support research organisations to develop and implement policies and interventions, and will coordinate efforts between stakeholders, notably between existing European national reproducibility networks. The action may facilitate the development of national networks in additional European countries. The action will support the development of training materials and training programmes, the mutual learning and exchange of practices and tools, and awareness raising, for researchers, reviewers and research organisations. The action will also put in place mechanisms to monitor the effects of policies and practices implemented, thus enabling future adaptations based on evidence gathered. In order to better achieve the expected outcomes, international cooperation is encouraged, in particular with third countries that are active in the development of policies and initiatives to increase the reproducibility of research results.

The action should build on the research results and recommendations from projects selected under call topic HORIZON-WIDERA-2022-ERA-01-41 that aims at understanding the underlying drivers of reproducibility and recommending effective interventions, as well as from other relevant projects and initiatives.
