With the “Open Science” movement, scientists make their research processes visible to the public by clearly presenting their methods and sharing their data. This allows for fellow scientists and interested parties to understand the underlying projects and processes the scientist originally used in their research, and if necessary, collaborate on improvements beyond the confines of institutions.
“We raise the quality of our research by bringing transparency to the process” says Professor Dr. Katharina Rohlfing, spokesperson of TRR 318. “Within the Transregio, we are already working across disciplines: researchers from various scientific fields come together, exchange ideas and thus enhance each other’s knowledge. With Open Science, we are looking for exactly this kind of exchange with experts outside of the project.”
