Study Results of the BSS Pilot Study 2021/22

The pilot study of the Berlin Science Survey was conducted in the winter semester 2021/22. The online survey targeted all academically active individuals at the four BUA institutions – Freie Universität Berlin (FU), Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU), Technische Universität Berlin (TU), and Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin. In addition, researchers from the Berlin Research 50 institutions were invited to participate in the survey.

The pilot study focused on the topics of open science, cooperation, and knowledge transfer against the background of the more general question of how science policy objectives affect research practices and research qualityAssessments of the Berlin research landscape were also collected.

The first results of the pilot study are presented on the subsequent webpages (the basic report can also be downloaded here). Core statements on each topic addressed in the pilot study are presented to create the basis for in-depth detailed analyses, which will be prepared and published in the following weeks on a topic-specific basis. The focus of the basic evaluation is the descriptive presentation of the core indicators. The detailed analyses will then include further, smaller-scale statements and also consider the statements in the context of covariates, such as gender, academic age, status group, and subject group membership.
