In cooperation with the Forum for interdisciplinary Research (FiF), we kindly invite you to the Academic Quarter. The Academic Quarter allows researchers to bring out a challenge concerning responsible research, such as:
- Is there a lack of public awareness in regard to a problem?
- How is the societal context derogatory for the success of necessary research?
- How is the research affected by the tendency for exaggerated illustration of scientific achievements?
- Are there obstacles to teach essential expertise?
Following an introduction of 15 minutes, the researchers discuss the presented challenge for another 30 minutes and try to develop starting points for further examination. Short summaries of the discussions can be accessed as Rückblicke (in German).
Recently we also added a forth quarter to have the possibility to make announcements or discuss the development of academic activities.
