Early Career Award 2021
With ManyBabies5, Jessica Kosie and Martin Zettersten (both from Princeton University, USA) are planning a large-scale and cross-cultural study on influential models in infant attention research. Current theories on this subject are largely only based on studies with a small number of participants, who are primarily from western industrialized countries. The ManyBabies5 team is a large-scale collaborative effort of more than 200 scientists from 122 laboratories in 40 countries on 6 continents. The overarching goal is to build a more robust and valid developmental science.
Four projects had been nominated for the Early Career shortlist 2021. The researchers presented their proposals at the Symposium on Integrity in Research and the Einstein Foundation Award jury chose a winning team.
