Project description

Access to high-quality infrastructure is an important competitive factor for cutting-edge research, for attracting highly qualified scientists and for attracting third-party funding. Objective 5 “Sharing Resources” aims to expand the shared use of research infrastructures and create a Berlin-wide network of research infrastructures and services.

The project "Improving the administrative framework" aims to create transparent and efficient processes and structures that enable low-threshold access to knowledge and research services as well as seamless collaboration. To this end, a detailed understanding of the initial situation and the requirements for these framework conditions has been developed in several workshops with experts of various BUA-departments in previous preliminary projects, which took place from September 2023 to March 2024.

The sub-projects "Legal framework", "Tax regulations" and "Models for cost distribution" focus on the systematic collection, presentation and clarification of central legal, financial and fiscal issues and problems in cooperation projects.
