InSPiR2eS Centre for Responsible Science (IC4RS)

IC4RS was launched in March 2023 for the benefit of all InSPiR2eS members. IC4RS provides a virtual platform for like-minded researchers to promote and engage in the principles and practices of Responsible Science. The primary vision and goal of IC4RS is to meaningfully facilitate a conducive environment, motivations, and incentives for the next generation of researchers to deliver high quality research that is credible, relevant, and independent. Moreover, the underlying vision of the IC4RS is to service, at scale, remote and under-resourced locations around the globe where research training and capacity building in line with the principles of Responsible Science, is, at best, a monumental challenge and, at worst, entirely non-existent. Currently, IC4RS has 47 Node Leaders, in 25 countries spread across all 6 continents. … be INSPIRED
