BUA Research Integrity Conference (In)Credible Research 2021 - Science and Communication

News from Sep 14, 2021

Dates: October 7 & 8, 2021
Format: Online
Language: English

Supported by the Berlin University Alliance (BUA),  a diverse group of PhD students at BUA institutions are organizing a conference for Early Career Researchers (ECRs). 

To promote credible research practice and empower ECRs through providing skills training and collaboration platform.

Conference Objectives:
Over the past year, it has become ever more evident how important communication of scientific evidence is. We have seen how effective communication can be challenging in the time of infodemic. What is the role of ECRs in science communication, and how can we be most effective? How can we strike a balance between timeliness and scientific integrity? How can we ensure transparency? These are the types of questions we want to address through the conference this year: “(In)credible Research – Science and Communication”.
More specifically, we aim to: 

  • Spotlight the current state of science communication 

  • Promote learning about science communication tools that ECRs can implement in their daily work 

  • Educate and empower ECRs to improve the quality and robustness of scientific work throughout the research process 

  • Provide a forum for exchange about challenges ECRs face in our work 

  • Facilitate environment for cross-disciplinary collaboration
