Dr. Torger Möller, Deutsches Zentrum für Hochschul- und Wissenschaftsforschung [DZHW], Berlin. Research Colloquium 22.06.2022, 16.30–18.00, INCHER.

Researcher independence is an ambivalent concept. On the one hand, young researchers should become more and more independent of their former supervisors. On the other hand, research is increasingly characterized by collaborations. How to bring this ambivalence of researcher independence into a coherent concept and how to measure it? Does the degree of independence have an impact on funding decisions and scientific careers?
