|Veranstalter:||Einstein Foundation Award for Promoting Quality in Research In cooperation with the BIH QUEST Center for Responsible Research|
Greater biodiversity enhances stability and robustness in ecosystems, species, and individuals. However, the question arises: do similar principles apply to the research ecosystem? Despite numerous programs, statements, and discussions advocating for increased diversity in academia, empirical data and evidence on the effects of diversity on research quality remain limited. This knowledge gap is particularly concerning given the entrenched biases within the research system and persistently low levels of diversity in academia across dimensions such as gender, ethnicity, and socioeconomic background.
The Einstein Foundation Award for Promoting Quality in Research together with the BIH QUEST Center for Responsible Research, the Berlin University Alliance, and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation aim to shed light on the multifaceted relationship between academic diversity and research quality, thereby propelling the advancement of robust scientific practices.
During a virtual brainstorming session scheduled for October, followed by a subsequent panel discussion on November 3rd, valuable perspectives and insights will be collected from global experts. Further details can be accessed here.
