The forum focused on four themes: open scholarship, replication, changing incentives, and growing the field. Leading researchers shared an overview of each theme and lead an interactive discussion of gaps in the current evidence, while funders shared exemplars of solutions they had implemented. Each thematic session closed with breakout discussions about potential investments to advance research and interventions to implement and test.
Each day consisted of short presentations by a scientist, a funder that engaged on the topic of the day, facilitated breakout discussions, and a roundtable conversation. Please see the complete program guide here.
