Previous event: Celebrating openness (2020)
Why is transparency important for the research process? What are the advantages and challenges of opening up research? How are researchers at the University of Groningen doing this in practical terms? Can a modified lottery be a just method to assign research funding or prizes?
Our online event on 22 October celebrated the many ways in which academics make their research more accessible, transparent or reproducible.
Lightning talks: Inspiring open research case studies from UG researchers
Be inspired by peers! Three UG researchers will present their case studies as lightning talks (5-10 minutes). They will share their experience with open research, demonstrate how they - successfully or unsuccessfully - apply open research practices and explore the challenges and diffulties of making open choices.
Prior to the event, the jury randomly drew these three case studies among all eligible submissions of the award. The three submissions are invited to present their research as lightning talks during the event and will each receive 500 euros.

Modified lotteries in research funding
The award is meant to highlight and acknowledge endeavours to apply open research practices and not to rank submissions in a competitive manner. A modified lottery system is therefore used as it fits well with the 'open and fair' principles of the award. It is also expected to reduce bias, to increase diversity and to contribute to alleviate the competitive climate in academia.
Can modified lotteries really be a useful and just way to assign research funding or prizes? The panel discussion 'Luck of the draw' features Pauline Kleingeld (UG, Faculty of Philosophy), Marie-José van Tol (UMCG) and Marco Bieri (Swiss National Science Foundation, SNSF). The SNSF has experimented with the random selection process for research funding since 2019.
