You are warmly invited to the national launch of Octopus, an open research platform designed to be fast, free and fair. The event will take place via Zoom on 29 June at 4pm. It will include a panel discussion with speakers from across the research community as well as a demo of the platform itself.
This virtual event marks the first live release of the platform to the global research community. Octopus aims to become the place where all primary scientific research is registered and described in full detail. It seeks to change how we all approach research – rewarding best practice, minimising biases, and mitigating the pressures for questionable research practices.
Jisc is working on this project in collaboration with its creator, Dr Alex Freeman of the Winton Centre at Cambridge, in partnership with UKRN and with funding from UKRI (Research England).
Book your free place on 29 June
