Good Scientific Practice Quality in research

Research Assessment

With the evaluation of research, the University of Bern aims to achieve transparency in the services provided, to develop decision-making aids for medium and long-term planning and to use the results for quality improvement and further development in research.

The Vice-Rectorate Research of the University of Bern (VRF) advises the Q-bords on the design of the evaluation systems and offers support in the interpretation of the results. The VRF also provides key data for research and prepares reports for the faculties and institutes in accordance with the evaluation concepts and specifications of the appointment processes. Further evaluations are made upon request and agreement.

Questions regarding faculty-specific research evaluation and the internal organisation of data collection should be addressed to the respective
Q-Beauftragten or Q-Assistierenden of the faculties.
