Project titel: Lab Know-How as Shared Resource

Project duration: 02/21 – 06/24

Participating institutions: Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin

Principal investigators:

  • Prof. Dr. Fabian Klostermann, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin
  • Prof. Dr. Pia Knoeferle, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin

Project description:

The Berlin University Alliance partners are home to numerous individual laboratories with innovative research equipment. In the humanities, social sciences and neurosciences, these are often used for data acquisition on topics of information and language processing, with a focus on e.g., language learning, usability, speech therapy, neural bases of linguistic functions and their change under pathophysiological conditions. The applicants are members of the Charité and the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. The goal is to make the individual laboratories of the Berlin University Alliance more accessible to students as shared resource (junior) researchers. To this end, the following actions were taken:

  • the individual laboratories and the existing equipment was catalogued in a database, and the management of laboratories supported as a shared resource; protocols for laboratory access, use, and data protection are published and shared with a wider user audience
  • materials were created in order to effectively transfer and exchange the know-how of researchers already established in these fields in the use of methods and devices as well as in data analysis and interpretation; to this end, training units, courses, workshops and e-learning units on topics such as experimental designs, device use, evaluation standards, e.g., for eye-movement or EEG studies, statistical training and source localization in the brain were offered.
