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.

Online Colloquium of the Objective 3

The colloquium always takes place on the last Wednesday of the month from 2 to 3:30 p.m. (s.t.). Interested parties can register for the online colloquium by email to nele.albrecht@berlin-university-alliance.de

Wednesday, April 27, 2022, 2 to 3:30 p.m.:

Responsible Indicators - Investigating the status quo of various models of performance-based allocation of funds (LOM) in research among institutions in the Berlin University Alliance

Dr. Miriam Kip, head of the project team Incentivization and Indicators and Charité Representative for Incentivization and Indicators, will present in this session the work and interim results of the project "Responsible Indicators", in which a status quo survey and consideration of different models of performance-oriented funding (LOM) for research at the institutions of the Berlin University Alliance was undertaken. The consideration of current practices across disciplines and institutions will allow for a critical discussion on intended and unintended effects of steering elements. In addition, the question will be explored to what extent steering elements can be made useful for quality improvement in research in the future. The platform developed out of the project, the LOMIKON, which can be used for these purposes, will be presented and discussed.

The colloquium is addressed to all interested persons from any scientific or non-scientific field. The session will be held in German.
