Responsible and Reproducible Research (R3)


The goal of R3 is to provide solid infrastructures, data processes, data handling and methods in order to ensure compliance with the European Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and to raise research quality and increase overall reproducibility of scientific results. A Data Information System (DAISY) has been developed that implements the "accountability principle" of the GDPR into research and is currently being deployed for other research institutions in Luxembourg. LCSB’s R3 reproducibility layer aims to standardise the classical research publication workflow by structuring data, capturing lab protocols and experimental methods in electronic lab notebooks, source code versioning, workflow management and freezing of project states via virtualisation technologies. The development of consistent, stable, and high quality scientific computing code is accelerated and ensured through a continuous integration approach.
