The project is supported by the federal program P5 Open Science (SERI, swissunviersities) for 2 years (September 2021 - August 2023).

The overarching objective of the project is to develop and pilot a tailor-made and flexible framework that systematically incorporates Open Science activities into the evaluation of candidates in professorial hiring. To achieve its main goal, the project has the following specific objectives:

  • Map existing best practice in Open Science hiring frameworks & develop UZH framework  (September 2021-February 2022)
  • Pilot & review (fitness-for-purpose) of hiring framework in professorial hiring processes (March 2022-February 2023)
  • Finalize hiring framework for publication/dissemination (March 2023-August 2023)
