The QUEST Center plans and implements various projects and measures, among others in collaboration with the Department of Experimental Neurology Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin.
The unique feature: The activities of the QUEST Center have a very practical relevance - an translational approach - as we seek to test new approaches in design, analysis and reporting at the Berlin Institute of Health (BIH) building a bridge between basic research and clinical care. The procedures and projects to be implemented are identified by so-called "meta-research", i.e. research on research. During and after the implementation, we also want to examine the effectiveness. The QUEST projects focus on matters such as systematic reviews, Open Science (open data, metadata, and ontologies), Stakeholeder Engagement, Science Policy, (incentives and rewards in academia, new metrics and indicators), Replication and Reproducibility, Electronic Laboratory Notebook, registration and publication of clinical studies, teaching and quality management in the preclinical research.
