The Einstein Foundation Berlin and the members of the jury warmly congratulate Paul Ginsparg on becoming the first-ever recipient of the Individual #EinsteinFoundationAward for Promoting Quality in #Research! 🏆 🎉 🍾
In developing, Paul Ginsparg has laid the foundations for a revolution in scientific #publishing as #preprint servers are now commonly used in many scientific fields. Today, the platform holds over two million scientific articles from various fields.
Paul Ginsparg, founder of the first open access preprint server, receives the €200,000 Individual #EinsteinFoundationAward. The Professor of Physics & Information Science @Cornell pioneered the use of new technologies in automated quality control...⬇️
The Einstein Foundation Berlin and the members of the jury warmly congratulate @OSFramework on receiving the first-ever Institutional #EinsteinFoundationAward! 🏆🎊
More than 350,000 users from the #naturalsciences, #socialsciences, and #lifesciences, among others, utilize the Open Science Framework @OSFramework and highly regard its transparent, accessible, collaborative processing of #researchdata.
The €200,000 Institutional #EinsteinFoundationAward goes to the Center for Open Science @OSFramework in Charlottesville, VA for its promotion to drive change in global research culture by providing scholars the tools and infrastructure to make #openscience the default.
The Einstein Foundation and all jury members wish you fruitful future work and great success in the realization of your project ManyBabies5, @m_zettersten & @JessKosie @Princeton! We're looking forward to witnessing its growth.
The project ManyBabies5 by @m_zettersten & @JessKosie @Princeton is to create an international consortium of infant researchers to increase #diversity amongst developmental researchers + their test subjects.➡️ #EinsteinFoundationAward 2021 #ECR
Not an easy choice – four outstanding projects were shortlisted for the Early Career #EinsteinFoundationAward! Today, the jury decided: a sum of €100,000 to carry out their research project goes to @m_zettersten & @JessKosie! Congratulations! 💐👏🍾
In her address for the #EinsteinFoundationAward​s 2021, @Magda_Skipper Editor in Chief @Nature, advocates #research quality & robustness, and calls for “tools with which good research practice can be transparently communicated.”For more, tune in now ➡️
“Even the proudest researchers would admit they cannot succeed on their own. #Research needs institutional support. It needs funding + space for long-term thinking, collaboration, and bold risk-taking” – @melindagates @gatesfoundation in her #EinsteinFoundationAward statement.
In her opening note to the #EinsteinFoundationAward, @melindagates @gatesfoundation stresses the importance of “stronger methods, greater rigor & more transparency” for scientific breakthroughs in the future. “The award celebrates those who elevate the field of research itself.”
“I am glad to announce the first recipients of the #EinsteinFoundationAward tonight”, says Martin Rennert @Einstein_Berlin. “They personify perfectly the award’s objective: to promote systematic research quality and strengthen public trust in #science and #research.”
Martin Rennert, Chair @Einstein_Berlin, welcomes everyone watching the #EinsteinFoundationAward presentation online. He thanks the Damp Foundation for the donation of the €500K prize money p.a. for a period of 10 years, and the State of Berlin @RegBerlin for additional support.
