Objective 3: Advancing Research Quality and Value

The Berlin Alliance partners will pursue a joint agenda for developing and promoting the value, quality, integrity, and credibility of research. In order to achieve this goal, the Alliance will create a Center for Open and Responsible Research (CORe) that will structure and coordinate an implementation process for value-based research governance elements and policies. In close collaboration with CORe, the Alliance will foster Research and Reflection on Research Quality (R3Q), thus providing a nucleus for researchers already involved in meta-research. The Berlin OpenX Initiative will develop and support incentives for research openness and transparency, and it will help to develop an error culture (“Fehlerkultur”) that values such openness.


Junior Research Group in the topic area Research Quality and Open Science

The call for proposals for two junior research groups offers young talents the opportunity to further develop their scientific profile and establish themselves as independent researchers – embedded in a uniquely diverse scientific space of the Berlin University Alliance. Application deadline is August 1, 2021.

Junior Research Group „Research Quality in and across Disciplines“
Junior Research Group „Digital Methods and Research Quality“
