Research Activities

The Berlin metropolitan region and its research activities are the main research subjects for the RMZ. The diversity of the Berlin research landscape with its universities, technical colleges, non-university research institutions, museums, collections and their cooperation with industry, politics and civil society also offers a wide range of opportunities to empirically research on relevant questions. In connection with forms of “institutional research”, this region should benefit from the work first. Currently, it focusses on the following topics:

  • Quality and Integrity of Research
  • Young talents and careers
  • University governance
  • Translation
  • Data infrastructures and indicators

The aim is to involve the researched subject in the cognitive process in a collaborative manner and to not only produce knowledge for science studies itself, but also for the researched subject; be it universities, disciplines, individual researchers, politics, industry or civil society.


These are the current research projects:

Automated misconduct detection (AUTO)
Berliner Forschungslandschaft - Berlin Science Survey (BSS)
Diversity and Adjustability of Peer Review (DIVA
Matters of Research Assessment and its Implementation (MAI)
