The conference theme – “Sharing strategies for Research Improvement” – for us represents an ambition to move beyond the articulation and description of problems, to instead provide greater focus on possible solutions; their development, testing, evaluation and dissemination. We will consider challenges and opportunities for improvement from the perspective of Ethics Committees and Regulators, Publishers, Institutions and Researchers, and Funders; and will have themes running through the conference on new methods for measuring and testing interventions. By involving communities beyond biomedical research, we hope to broaden the discussion, that we can learn from each other’s experience. The choice of the meeting venue enables us to come together under one roof with ample circulation areas to promote discussion. The agenda includes opportunities and facilities for ad hoc groups to form and to discuss specific issues arising during the conference, with a view to establishing new collaborative networks. We are particularly keen to provide a platform for the next generation of research improvement researchers and practitioners, and the agenda reflects this. To make this a successful conference, we need your help. Please come to Berlin, present your scientific work, and let us all together successfully shape the 3rd REWARD | EQUATOR Conference in the wonderful city of Berlin.
