Methods in Research on Research (MiRoR)

MIROR is an innovative and ambitious joint doctoral training programme funded by Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, dedicated to Methods in Research on Research (MIROR) in the field of clinical research.
“Research on Research”, is an emerging new scientific discipline that aims to reduce waste in research and increase research value.
Tens of billions of Euros are wasted each year on studies that are redundant, flawed in their design, never published or poorly reported. The public is the main victim of this waste and reducing waste and increasing value of research represents a major societal challenge. MIROR will train 15 PhD students to become the future generation of high-level scientists to develop innovative methods of Research on Research. The students will be awarded with a double degree.
