How are research funders working to minimize waste in research?

Following the publication of The Lancet’s 2014 series on ‘Research: increasing value, reducing waste’, a team of researchers undertook a project evaluating processes that research funders use to provide transparency and reduce waste in making funding decisions. They have presented the results of their research in a letter to The Lancet, published 9 March 2017. Plymouth University is featuring the research project on their website, including a video interview with lead author Mona Nasser, a longtime Cochrane contributor and Governing Board member.
