About the HEADT Centre
Researching Data, Images and Text
The Humboldt-Elsevier Advanced Data and Text Centre (HEADT Centre) is a research initiative that belongs to Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU Berlin) with financial management via Humboldt-Innovation GmbH (HI). The focus of our research is on research integrity and there are two Principal Investigators, one from the Berlin School of Library and Information Science, and one from the Institute for Computer Science at HU Berlin. One of our key goals is to establish the HEADT Centre as a leading national and international organization for research in this area.
One of our key goals is to establish broader international cooperation among universities and institutions with similar research interests. Part of this is to reach out to the wider academic public with our research output. That includes both publications and activities such as workshops and seminars to share our materials with scholars from various domains.
We will make the results of the HEADT Centre’s research readily accessible to others, including publishers, hospitals, and private companies with an interest in the results of its research. We will also develop a sustainability and marketing concept including both the acquisition of grants, consulting and training.
The HEADT Centre office will play a key role in project coordination, but will have other tasks as well. In particular it will help to organize broader international cooperation and seminars among universities and institutions with similar research interests.
