Teams serve three key purposes: (a) advancing the adoption of open and reproducible science tenets in higher-education via the training of educators in their capacity as teachers and mentors; (b) increase of community engagement within our internal and external communities and resource gathering; (c) and providing community members with hands-on experiences of the challenges and rewards of peer-to-peer collaboration in the context of busy professional lives. Below you find the team organized alphabetically as it is the same order as in Slack.

Team dedicated to the coordination and organization of FORRT’s Open and Reproducible Science Literature Summaries.
Team responsible for any and all issues related to the website (e.g., maintenance, add/change content, ideas about pages or blogs, inclusion of recently produced content, correction of typos, etc.).
