Committees & boards

In this work group we seek to develop novel strategies to introduce Open Science ideas into committees and boards. We are further questioning certain incentive based practices and evaluations at the University and aim to develop suggestions for changes at the University level.


  • How can we implement Open Science ideas in the evaluation of PhDs/Graduate Schools, Habilitationen or Professorships?
  • Development of suggestions how to improve the current evaluation processes in the research commission, awards etc.
  • Development of suggestions for the ethics committee with regards to Open Science
  • Suggesting additional Open Science related check boxes for the search profile for professorships
  • Designing novel Open Science concepts for future collaborative research proposals
  • Developing ideas for a change of the current incentive system
