The projects are based at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, where two units set up the HEADT Centre and initialize research in the two core areas:
- the Berlin School of Library and Information Science (Institut für Bibliotheks- und Informationswissenschaft) is working on issues regarding Research Integrity, and
- the Department of Computer Science (Institut für Informatik) is doing research on Improving Infrastructure for Computer-Aided Discovery.
More institutions both from within and outside of the university with an interest in these topics may join as our research progresses.
This research is funded by Elsevier. The HEADT Centre is an independent cooperative venture agreed by Humboldt-Innovation (HI), which is the technology transfer unit of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.
