Rewards and Incentives
Researchers are in theory overwhelmingly in favor of R&R; however, the actual implementation of practice requires the buy-in of researchers and institutions. SPORR is examining the motivations behind R&R, such as acknowledgement from funding agencies, evidence for career promotion, and other rewards. Understanding how researchers are incentivized aids in the development of tools and resources to make R&R and efficient and beneficial practice in everyday research, resulting in true culture change for researchers and universities.
We are currently working on:
- Awarding Stanford Medicine researchers and staff for their R&R acomplisments
- Deveoping a network of R&R representatives
- Developing recommendations for update of the Stanford's School of Medicine CV template, which would allow researchers and educators to highlight their R&R activities and training
