Education and Training Offers

Event overview of the BUA partners

The Berlin University Alliance supports education and training measures that impart theoretical and practical knowledge in the fields of research quality and open science and contributes to their expansion. This also includes own and jointly funded formats of the partner institutions.

In a tabular overview, we have compiled the courses offered for the summer semester 2023 (April 1 to September 30, 2023). The overview of current courses of the continuing education institutions and graduate schools of the collaborative partners provides insight into a variety of opportunities to integrate research quality and open science into one's own work practice. The events are often open to all members of the collaborative partners.

The overview of the various offerings of the collaborative partners does not claim to be exhaustive. If you know of further events that should be integrated into this overview, we would be pleased to hear from you. In the download area below you will find the overviews of events from previous semesters.

European Summer School for Scientometrics (esss)

The European Summer School for Scientometrics provides education and training on key aspects of quantitative studies of science and technology. It provides an overview of state-of-the-art scientometric methods and indicators and their application both in research and in the context of scientific policy advice and research evaluation. It has been designed for scholars and scientists, especially doctoral candidates, science managers, research officers, information scientists, librarians, and others with a professional interest in science and technology indicators and their application.

Training "Superb Supervision"

The course covers a wide range of topics, from research culture to social skills to teaching Responsible Research Practices and critically examining the role and self-image of the supervisor. The workshop employs a variety of facilitation techniques that encourage active participation by participants.

"Anyone supervising students should take this course! It is a fantastic overview of all the steps you need to take to guide your students in the right direction.”(Participant, October 2022)
