Aligned with the workshop’s vision of inclusivity the registration is free. However, we encourage senior funded researchers and PIs to register as donating attendees. Donations will go into a pot that also contains the contributions from our corporate sponsors, and will be used to support projects and initiatives in the open-science and reproducibility sphere after covering the operational costs of the meeting. The donors will be acknowledged here (from which you can decide to opt out).

By participating in #MRITogether23 in any form you agree to the code of conduct.
