Project without external funding

Development of a professional service for the support of scientific research at universities and the use of electronic networks

Project Details
Project duration: 199501/2002

Because of stagnating or decreasing public budgets, scientific research at universities gets under financial pressure. Means have to be derived from external sources, e.g. foundations, institutions supporting scientific research, federal departments, or the EU. That requires a special experience, which underlies specialisation and professionalisation, that is not longer part of the qualification of an average researcher at universities. The field of service for the support of scientific research at universities is strongly expanding, but the development of tools don't follow. The thesis that is put forward states that the internet will become an important tool because of the quick distribution of authentic data. But until today, it has been rarely studied whether or not the support of scientific research through professionalised service is successful at all.
