MiRoR final conference on meta-research

The MiRoR consortium organised a conference on “Meta-research for transforming clinical research” on Monday, November 25, 2019 at the Académie Nationale de Médecine in Paris.

Featuring international prestigious guests, this conference aimed to present our main results and to discuss several aspects of Research on Research. Among the topics on the agenda: prediction models, p-value, data sharing, NLP for research reproducibility and integrity.

The conference brought together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of meta-research. The event was opened by Prof. John Ioannidis who delivered a keynote speech.

PowerPoint presentations and video recordings are available below.

During the conference a booklet containing the main findings arising from the fellows’ research projects has been distributed to all the participants. This publication is now available for download here.
