Berliner Forschungslandschaft / Berlin Science Survey
Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, RMZ, Principal Investigator: Dr. Jens Ambrasat, Project Staff: Dr. Denise Lüdtke, Duration: 05/2022-10/2026
The Berlin Science Survey (BSS) is a scientific trend study on cultural change in the Berlin research landscape. For this purpose, the experiences and assessments of scientists in the Berlin research space are collected at regular intervals in an online survey.
The pilot study took place in the winter semester 2021/22 and the next survey wave is planned for the winter semester 2023/24. In addition, a subsample of respondents will be recruited into a so-called "volunteer panel", with which topic-specific ad hoc surveys are planned between the repeat surveys of the BSS.
In the BSS, the experiences and assessments of scientists* are regularly surveyed on topics such as collaborations, open science, knowledge transfer, diversity and promotion of young scientists. The focus is on the sometimes very different subject-cultural conditions. The results of the BSS can reveal trends and changes in research culture over time. At the same time, the results, together with data from other data sources, are incorporated into the BUA monitoring, which critically reflects the changes in the Berlin research area brought about by science policy control.
