Hamburg University is currently implementing a new science infomation system. Next to personnel data, information on research grants, collaborative projects, publications, or patents will be systematically gathered and provided in one integrated system. Since both our research projects are concerned with the coordination of research collaborations and the analysis of potential, latent, and invisible collaboration networks (Invisible Colleges), we thought it would be a great idea to consult the project steering committee and see if we may contribute to the project. As expected, both sides had a lot of interesting and novel ideas to exchange. We’re very excited to be part of the project and, thus, will further intensify our cooperation.
The RePort-Project has initiated a cooperation with the administration at the University of Hamburg. Our counterparts are responsible for university-wide planning, controlling, and quality management. We meet on a regular basis to exchange our ideas, questions, data, readings, and other information. We are very excited about this opportunity to reflect and improve the practical relevance of our research!
