Exchange and Networking


The colloquium is a digital event series that serves, among other things, to present and interconnect the projects funded within the Advancing Research Quality and Value objective. At the same time, the colloquium was established as an information and exchange platform for all those interested in the topic of research quality and open science from research, science management, administration, and the public. Thus, it addresses not only researchers, who in their daily work must face the demands of practically fulfilling the highest scientific quality requirements against the background of conflicting or sometimes even absent standards, but it also addresses the areas of science administration and science policy, which have to define and implement framework conditions for research.

The colloquium is always held digitally on the last Wednesday of the month from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. In addition to the members of the Berlin University Alliance, external program managers are regularly invited. To register and receive the meeting link.

Panel discussion: Credit where it’s due. Just a matter of fairness

A panel discussion on January 9, 2023, 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. at the Weizenbaum Institute, Hardenbergstr. 32, 10623 Berlin (and remote via livestream) with Stephen Curry (Imperial College London / DORA), Amelya Keles (Berlin Exchange Medicine), Jessica Rohmann (Max-Delbrück-Centrum), Cornelia Schendzielorz (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin / Robert Merton Center for Science Studies), Sonja Schimmler (Technische Universität Berlin / Fraunhofer Fokus), Bart Verberck (Nature Portfolio, Springer Nature).

This panel discussed various aspects of crediting in academia ranging from the promotion of young researchers to the question of equity with regard to contributions to scholarly output that lie beyond publishing. Moreover, it talked about  effects that result from crediting or non-crediting on an individual as well as systemic level.

You can also follow up on the discussion in an article published by Der Tagesspiegel.

Open Science-Stammtisch

The Open Science regulars' table takes place on the first Thursday of every month from 7:00 PM in Berlin-Neukölln and primarily addresses people from the Berlin and Brandenburg research and university teaching areas who are involved with Open Science as science managers, users or funders and who create the framework conditions for open research practices at their institutions.

As part of the monthly meetings, we always invite experts whose topics sharpen our understanding of the complex topic of openness in research and teaching and sensitize us to various aspects. At the same time, we use the regulars' table to inform ourselves about activities from our institutions and to create synergies.
