  • Title: 2013 Meeting | Global Research Council
    Descriptive info: Results of the “Global Research Council” in Berlin Announced.. Heads of 70 research funding organisations from around the world met on 27– 29 May 2013 in Berlin / Endorsed statements concerning “Open Access” and “Research Integrity”.. On 29 May 2013, the 2nd Annual Global Meeting of the Global Research Council (GRC) in Berlin has ended.. Over three days, the heads of about 70 science and research councils from around the world as well as high-ranking guests from science and research, science administration and research policy attended the meeting.. The topics of discussion and endorsement were an Action Plan towards Open Access, a high-level Statement of Principles for Research Integrity as well as new statutes for the GRC.. Hosted jointly by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the National Council of Technological and Scientific Development (CNPq) of Brazil, the 2nd Annual Global Meeting was the largest of its kind so far and represented some 80 percent of the world’s public, non-ministerial research potential.. The outcomes of the meeting’s discussions as well as the endorsed documents were presented at a press conference on 29 May 2013 in the Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften in Berlin.. DFG-President Professor Peter Strohschneider stressed the relevance of “Open Access” to publications as a main paradigm of scientific communication in the following years.. The participants agreed that sharing research publications openly is a means to increase the quality of research communication and thus of research itself.. The endorsed Action Plan includes activities by which GRC member organisations can foster the open exchange of research results with a high degree of flexibility.. Therefore the plan specifies three basic principles: encouragement, awareness rising, and support for researchers that wish to provide their results in Open Access.. The implementation requires engaging a number of stakeholders: in addition to scientists and scholars themselves, for instance, universities, science organisations, libraries, and publishers.. The endorsed Principles for Research Integrity point out that researchers and institutions themselves remain ultimately responsible for undertaking research with integrity.. On the other hand, research funding agencies have an obligation to ensure that supported research corresponds to the highest standards possible, as CNPq-President Professor Glaucius Oliva stated.. Both the Action Plan and the Principles for Research Integrity had been developed at a set of regional meetings  ...   and Research of Hamburg.. The Global Research Council is a voluntary, informal organisation of heads of research councils (HORCs) from around the world, pledged to find mutually acceptable paths to greater interna-tional research collaboration.. Its goal is to represent most of the world’s research potential by getting all interested key players in research and research funding worldwide involved.. To ensure a globally consultative process and to improve communication and cooperation among research funding agencies, the GRC annually holds a set of regional meetings as well as an annual global meeting to gather input from the different world regions, address issues of mutual concern to research and research funding worldwide, and to agree on guidelines and principles by which multinational research collaboration can be enhanced.. Thereby, the GRC shall also provide assistance to those research institutions and funding organisations wishing to build a world-class research landscape.. The Global Research Council was established in May 2012 at the “Global Summit on Merit Re-view” held in Washington, DC.. On invitation of the U.. S.. National Science Foundation (NSF) about 50 HORCs endorsed a high-level Statement of Principles for Scientific Merit Review.. Former NSF-Director Dr.. Subra Suresh and former DFG-President Professor Matthias Kleiner played key roles in launching the GRC and both were present at the Berlin meeting.. The Annual Global Meeting 2014 will take place in Beijing hosted by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).. At the press conference CAS-President Professor Bai Chunli and NSERC-Vice-President Isabelle Blain invited scientists, scholars, and research funders from all over the world to Beijing..

  • Title: 2012 Meeting | Global Research Council
    Descriptive info: 2012 Global Summit on Merit Review.. The Global Summit on Merit Review was hosted by the U.. National Science Foundation from May 13-15, 2012.. Almost 50 Heads of Research Councils, primarily representing the G-20 and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development countries, attended the event.. The participants endorsed a high-level Statement of Principles for Scientific Merit Review, and launched the Global Research Council.. The Statement of Principles for Scientific Merit Review is designed to provide a framework for increased international research cooperation, and to convey accepted international standards for science funding agencies.. The Statement was developed under the leadership of an International Steering Committee composed of representatives from Africa, the Americas, the Asia-Pacific region, Europe, and the Middle East/North Africa.. Steering Committee members convened Regional Meetings in late 2011 and early 2012 to gain input to the Principles from all regional stakeholders.. The Steering Committee synthesized the regional contributions into a single, high-level document.. The merit review process, as practiced by leading funding agencies worldwide, is recognized as an essential tool for evaluating scientific research.. In releasing a set of common Principles, the Summit participants identified best practices and standards that will cultivate  ...   Global Summit on Merit Review enthusiastically supported the establishment of the Global Research Council (GRC).. The GRC will be a virtual organization with no permanent secretariat, and will focus its activities on topics of broad international interest to funding agencies.. To this end, the Global Research Council will identify one or two topics for action annually, and then coordinate Regional Meetings to develop a consensus document for consideration at the Annual Meeting.. Following on from the 2012 meeting at NSF, the 2013 meeting will be held in Berlin and co-hosted by DFG (Germany) and CNPq (Brazil).. The two topics for 2013 are Scientific Integrity and Open Access.. Speaking at the conclusion of the meeting, NSF Director Dr.. Subra Suresh said "This global summit is the first step toward a more unified approach to the scientific process.. Science can rise above economic and cultural differences to help develop trust and clear the path for agreements in other areas.. Global scientific collaboration expands the pool of knowledge that belongs to everyone and serves as a tool to improve health, security and opportunity throughout the world.. Good science anywhere is good for science everywhere.. ".. NSF Press Release..
